The Broadway transfer of Joshua Harmonís comic-drama Significant Other, directed by Trip Cullman, begins previews at the Booth Theatre on February 14, 2017, before an official opening on March 2.
Synopsis: "Meet Jordan Berman. He's single. And he has a date with a co-worker to see a documentary about the Franco-Prussian war. At least, he thinks it's a date. Significant Other follows Jordan and his three closest friends as they navigate love, friendship and New York in the twenty-something years."
Reprising their roles from the Roundabout Theatre Company's previous world premiere production off-Broadway are Gideon Glick (Jordan), Oscar and Tony nominee Barbara Barrie (Helene), John Behlmann (Will/Conrad/Tony), Sas Goldberg (Kiki), Lindsay Mendez (Laura) and Luke Smith (Gideon/Evan/Roger). Joining them is the new addition of Rebecca Naomi Jones (Vanessa).
The Broadway transfer marks the Broadway debuts of both writer Joshua Harmon and director Trip Cullman. The creative team features choreography by Sam Pinkleton, set design by Mark Wendland, costume design by Kaye Voyce, lighting design by Japhy Weideman, and sound design by Daniel Kluger.
The world premiere engagement of Significant Other played off-Broadway's Laura Pels Theatre from May 21 to August 16, 2015. This marks only the second time a new play by Roundabout has transferred to the Great White Way. The first time was by Stephen Karem's Tony-winning Best Play The Humans.
