Defending The Caveman 8:00 pm
Defending The Caveman @ Marathon Center for the Performing Arts
Feb 11 @ 8:00 pm
Arriving in time for Valentine’s Day, “Defending the Caveman” will examine relationship dynamics between the sexes with a one-man show at the Marathon Center for the Performing Arts at 8 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 11. Written by Rob Becker over a three-year period where he made an informal study of anthropology, prehistory, psychology, sociology and mythology, “Defending the Caveman” has since become a peacemaker in the ongoing misunderstandings between men and women, according to the production’s website. The show’s appeal spans other barriers, showing in 45 countries and 18 languages since it opened in San Francisco in 1991, eventually becoming the longest running solo play in Broadway history. Tickets can be purchased at the Marathon Center’s box office at 200 W. Main Cross St. from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Friday and one hour prior to the show. They are also available online at marathoncenterarts.org with prices ranging from $30 to $60. The show contains adult content and may not be suitable for children under 13. For more information, visit defendingthecaveman.com or call the Marathon Center’s box office at 419-423-2787.
