‘Significant Other’ Debuts on Broadway & Tickets Are On Sale Now
Theatergoers looking for a new kind of love story are sure to find it in Significant Other, a new play by Joshua Harmon that's now playing on Broadway at the Booth Theatre.
Directed by Trip Cullman, Significant Other tells the story of Jordan (Gideon Glick), a young gay man who's single and unlucky in love. As members of his group of friends get married and embark on new phases of their life, Jordan must learn to navigate his own love life - or lack thereof - and come to terms with the fact his life isn't progressing in the same way as those around him.
Significant Other initially debuted Off-Broadway in 2015 before opening earlier this month on the Great White Way. Much of the show's original cast has remained in tact for the Broadway transfer, including Glick, Lindsay Mendez, Sas Goldberg and Oscar-nominated actress Barbara Barrie, who returns to Broadway after previous turns in such shows as The Beaux Strategem, Torch Song Trilogy and the original production of Company. Joining the Broadway production is new cast member Rebecca Naomi Jones, who most recently appeared in Hedwig and the Angry Inch.
The millennial tale of love and friendship's Broadway bow has been met with largely positive reviews, with David Rooney of the Hollywood Reporter describing the show as "by turns hilarious and poignant" with "sharp, insightful writing."
"Glick delivers a star-making, gut-wrenching performance of deep sweetness and quicksilver mood shifts," Adam Feldman of Time Out New York wrote about the show, which he described as "even better" than the Off-Broadway iteration.
