‘Defending the Caveman’


For years my dad has been talking about a one-man play called Defending the Caveman. And without giving much away about this one-man act—except that it’s about the ways men and women communicate and relate (or don’t relate) to each other—he still manages to laugh, remembering the times he’s seen it. It’s been in Sacramento since June 1 (and runs through Sept. 11), and my dad’s already been once. And he loves it so much, he’s going again this Saturday—with my mom, me and my two sisters and our hubbies. Now that we’re all married, he says, it’s the perfect time to see it—and unless we’re easily offended, he says we’ll all find it hilarious. According to the Cosmopolitan Cabaret website, “Defending the Caveman makes us laugh at ourselves about all the ways men and women fight, laugh and love.” I love to laugh, and the idiosyncrasies of relationships are the funniest things to me, so I’m looking forward to it! If you can’t make it out to the Cosmopolitan Cabaret this week/weekend, the show runs Wednesdays through Sundays until Sept. 11, so you’ll have plenty of opportunities to check it out. Tickets range from $33 to $43, and they’re available online or can be purchased over the phone or in person.
