by Rob Becker

Broadway's Smash Comedy about the Sexes.

"Defending the Caveman" Repeat performance in Makati!"

"I laughed so hard my sides ached and tears ran down my face!"

"The show is so funny and so true!"

"What a hilarious and insightful show!"

"This play can save marriages… I'm not kidding!"

These are just some of the comments overheard last February 2010 at the Insular Life Theater in Alabang, where audiences had just seen local theater veteran Joel Trinidad perform in "Defending the Caveman," the longest-running one-man comedy show in Broadway history, which has sold over 8 million tickets worldwide in 16 different languages.

Why is this show such a hit everywhere in the world? Well, is there a more widely discussed subject than the difference between men and women? There are hundreds of books written on the subject but nevertheless there are few texts which address this eternal discussion point as humorous and as recognizable as the monologue "Caveman." "Defending the Caveman" shows in a hilarious, clear, and familiar way how different men and women are. Whatever the nationality is, both men and women will identify themselves clearly in the show's message.

"Defending The Caveman" was greeted upon its Philippine premiere with uncontrollable laughter, knowing nods of agreement, and a resounding standing ovation! Three months later, "Defending The Caveman" played to another appreciative SRO crowd, this time in Makati.

And now, to satisfy the requests for a repeat engagement and after a yearlong wait, "Defending the Caveman" returns on May 6, 7, 13, 14, 20, and 21 for a very limited engagement. All 6 dates are at 8:00 PM and will be held at the CPR Auditorium, 4th Floor, RCBC Plaza, Ayala Avenue cor Sen. Gil Puyat Avenue, Makati City. R-18 rating.

Joel Trinidad reprises his role as the "Caveman." Michael Williams and Cathy Azanza-Dy direct. "Defending the Caveman" is brought to you by CTE Productions and Theater Mogul in cooperation with the San Miguel 632-BEER (2337) Home Delivery Service, and (online millionaires helping you become one too).

Rating: 3/5
Joel trinidad is an admirable theater actor (I also sometimes watch him in his SPIT performances). Amazing that he could memorize and ad-lib all those lines being a one-person show. Though the script could be improved by incorporating examples that are part of our Filipino culture so it could drive the sentiments of the audience closer to home =)
