Sacramento365.com Reviews "Defending the Caveman" at the Cosmopolitan Cabaret

Defending the Caveman

What's better than enjoying a glass of wine and an appetizer from Cosmo Café? Doing the same while watching California Musical Theatre's rendition of Defending the Caveman at the Cosmopolitan Cabaret.

A delightful comedy about the relationship between the sexes, Caveman seeks to dispel the "men are all jerks" mantra, and manages to do so in a way that proves the point without disparaging either women or men. Through witty lines and insightful observations, Caveman encourages acceptance of the differences between the sexes, quietly pushing an agenda of coexisting and understanding, rather than resigning to a never-ending battle of the sexes. Referring to a multitude of home-hitting observations (in a consistently light-hearted and humorous way), the play incites one to think outside their gender—observing the actions of the opposite sex and considering the situation from their perspective before passing judgment or becoming upset.

As the playbill promises, affectionate nudging will occur throughout the performance as couples recognize the traits being described on stage in one another. Leaving the theatre, expect to have a smile on your face and a rejuvenated sense of peace with the ingrained differences between the sexes.
