Less Lonely, a new solo comedy show written and performed by Jes Tom, is set to premiere off Broadway this fall. Performances run at the Greenwich House Theater from November 28 to January 6, with opening night on December 11.

Tom's show is about their experiences with sex, love, and gender transition in the face of oblivion, death, and the end of the world. Less Lonely previously played off Broadway at the Cherry Lane Theatre and across the U.S.

The 2023 production is directed by Em Weinstein and presented by Elliot Page, an actor best known for his work in onscreen projects like Juno and The Umbrella Academy.

"Less Lonely is a triumph," said Page in a statement. "I laughed until I hurt, and I resonated with Jes’s insights on sex, gender, grief, and more. Go to the show to cackle, to be moved, and to revel in the brilliance of Jes Tom."

Like Page, Tom also has an established screen career. They are a story editor on the HBO Max series Our Flag Means Death and a performer in the movies and TV series Crush, Love Life, Tuca & Bertie,” and Dear Jes, their own digital series produced by Netflix.

In addition to regular tickets, same-day tickets will be available for $30 on TodayTix throughout the run of Less Lonely.
