REVIEWS

Significant Other was very entertaining in its 2015 Off Broadway at the Roundabout, and the production at the Booth Theatre—directed with ideal snap by Trip Cullman, and featuring most of the strong original cast—is even better: The comedy and aww-inspiring emotional moments have expanded to scale. Don’t underestimate the value of a smart new American romantic comedy on Broadway: It’s a rare thing indeed, and worth celebrating. See it, and bring a date if you can. You’ll want a hand to hold

---Time Out NY
In addition to the sharp, insightful writing, a big part of what prevents this delightful play from turning either trite or maudlin is the wonderful performance of Gideon Glick as Jordan, who is late-twenties, geeky-cute, comfortable in his sexuality, gainfully employed in advertising and desirably located in an Upper West Side Manhattan apartment. But somehow, despite his gnawing hunger for a fulfilling relationship, he remains hopelessly single. He and his similarly solo closest friend Laura (Lindsay Mendez) make a pact to be each other’s fallback option should the romantic horizon remain empty.

----Hollywood Reporter
Playwright Harmon (who also penned the very popular “Bad Jews”) strikes the perfect balance between comedy and pathos — with the emphasis on comedy — in this good-natured meditation on love and friendship.  Say what you will about eternal friendship, it goes right out the window when love comes through the door. Harmon clearly loves his demographic of 20-something singles who pride themselves on their grown-up sense of irony. He knows their pop-culture allusions, shares their musical tastes, and revels in their newly found freedoms. The wonder of his humor is that, while it reflects a youthful sensibility, his clever jokes appeal to all ages.
