Jordan Berman is desperately looking for Mr Right… but he is getting it all wrong. "Significant Other" by Joshua Harmon follows Jordan and his three closest girlfriends as they navigate love, friendship and New York in their twenty-something years. Jordan is single, and finding Mr. Right is much easier said than done. While surrounding himself with his close group of girlfriends, it comes to pass that the only thing harder than looking for love is supporting the loved ones around him as they pair off and embark on their journey of marriage. The New York Times hailed "Significant Other" as one of its Top Ten Productions of 2015, with critic Charles Isherwood commenting "... an absolutely wonderful new play. Entirely delightful, richly funny and heart-stirring".
