Comedian Gabe Mollica's Solo: A Show About Friendship will now play through November 18 at Connelly Theater Upstairs, pushing back its original closing date by three weeks. Mollica began his Off-Broadway return engagement October 10.
"I turned 30, and it occurred to me that I don't have any friends," declares Mollica at the top of the show, after which he attempts to explain why, walking audiences through the "30-year-old bros" in his life, teenage relationships, his first go at stand-up, and more.
The 70-minute work was previously thrice extended at Soho Playhouse, after enjoying runs at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and Winnipeg Fringe Festival, along with performances in Dallas, Chicago, Los Angeles, Albany, and Dublin.
Solo is directed and story produced by Greg Walloch (Hasan Minhaj: Homecoming King), with Caitlin Cook and Mahmood Alladadweh also producing. Ophira Eisenberg and Devin Delliquanti serve as creative consultants. Abey Weitzman is executive producer.
