The new comedy play by Joshua Harmon
Following on from his phenomenally successful comedy Bad Jews, Joshua Harmon's new play Significant Other heads to Los Angeles this summer for its West Coast Premiere, following its acclaimed Broadway run at the Booth Theatre. Follow the journey of Jordan Berman, a young man constantly on the look out for Mr Right, as he discovers that the path to true love is fraught. Significant Other follows on from the success of Harmon's Bad Jews, which went onto win a Lucille Lortel Award, as well as transferring to London's West End.
A sweet exploration into singledom and its social implications, Jordan is desperate to not be left behind, as he joins his trio of raucous (loved-up) female friends on the town night after night in order to stave off the loneliness that threatens to engulf him. However, as each of them start getting engaged, he finds himself having to deal with not only his romantic woes, but those of his supposedly settled friends as well.
Harmon's Bad Jews was a raucous comedy which premiered on Broadway in 2012, and has seen at least one revival. Set in a cramped New York City apartment, the play tells the tale of a feud amongst a Jewish family which erupts when their grandfather passes away, leaving a precious Holocaust-era heirloom
up for grabs.
