Caveman logoOhio Northern University's Freed Center for the Performing Arts presents "Defending the Caveman" on Saturday, Sept. 27, at 8 p.m.

With hilarious insight on contemporary feminism, masculine sensitivity and the erogenous zones, "Defending the Caveman" mines the common themes in relationships that go straight through the funny bone and into the heart. An adult comedy written by Rob Becker and starring Ben Tedder, "Defending the Caveman" is an outrageously funny and surprisingly sweet exploration of the gender gap.

"Defending the Caveman" is the longest-running solo show in Broadway history. After opening in San Francisco in 1991, the show moved to Dallas, where it was an irrefutable hit. It went on to sold-out engagements in Washington, D.C., Philadelphia and Chicago before opening on Broadway in 1995. After 702 performances, "Defending the Caveman" surpassed Lily Tomlin's "Search for Signs" and Jackie Mason's "The World According to Me."

Tickets are $30 for general admission. The Freed Center box office is open Monday-Friday from noon to 5 p.m. and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Phone orders are accepted with MasterCard, VISA or Discover by calling (419) 772-1900. Online ticketing is also available at
