Significant Other

April 3 - May 6, 2018
Gil Cates Theater
Written by Joshua Harmon
Directed by Stephen Brackett
Featuring Melanie Field, Vella Lovell, Preston Martin, Keilly McQuail, John Garet Stoker, Concetta Tomei & Will Von Vogt

"Glorious! Significant Other is an unorthodox (and increasingly dark) romantic comedy that will appeal both to traditionalists craving more existential realism and theatergoers who have long felt excluded from the genre." – Los Angeles Times
"It’s refreshing to see the gay character normally reserved for comic relief take center stage. And how marvelous that the role, magnificently inhabited by Will Von Vogt, has as much depth and complexity as sass." – Los Angeles Times
"Keilly McQuail and Will Von Vogt are absolutely riveting in Significant Other, Joshua Harmon’s mostly funny, sometimes sad take on the pitfalls of being the gay best friend." – StageandCinema.com
"Joshua Harmon’s smart, funny, bracingly sardonic romcom features all-around sensational performances... above all there is Will Von Vogt’s bravura star turn as Jordan." – StageSceneLA.com
"Under Stephen Brackett's finely paced direction, the actors are sublime. Keilly McQuail keeps Kiki self absorbed and very funny. Melanie Field is just marvelous as Laura. Will Von Vogt steals the play as Jordan with so many highs and lows to play... he creates a terrific balance and wins our hearts." – BroadwayWorld.com
CRITIC'S PICK! “Entirely delightful...as richly funny as it is ultimately heart-stirring." – The New York Times
“A lovely, bittersweet comedy about romantic yearning.” – The Hollywood Reporter
“Strikes the perfect balance between comedy and pathos.” – Variety

After a successful Off-Broadway and Broadway run, Joshua Harmon brings his affecting and hilarious play about finding and lacking love to the Geffen Playhouse. Significant Other follows Jordan, a single, young professional with a close group of female friends who slowly drift away as they each get married while he searches for his own “Mr. Right.” From the writer of the Geffen’s 2015 runaway hit Bad Jews, this New York Times Critics’ Pick revels in the paradox of feeling old when you’re still young and the sometimes-crushing loneliness that comes with growing up. With humor and humanity, Significant Other offers a relatable portrait of twenty-something urban life and the seemingly endless string of weddings that accompany it.

$20 Mobile Rush tickets will be available at 9:00 a.m. each performance day on a first-come, first-served basis through TodayTix.

2 hours and 10 minutes, including one 15 minute intermission.
