MODESTO -- A one-man show lampooning the battle of the sexes returns to the region when "Defending the Caveman" takes over the Gallo Center stage.
Cody Lyman, who also performed the show at Turlock Community Theatre in 2010, brings the popular comedy about the different ways men and women relate to each other to the Modesto center on March 22.
Created by Rob Becker, the show debuted in San Francisco in 1991. After a year in Dallas, "Caveman" went on to sold-out engagements in Washington, D.C., Philadelphia and Chicago before opening on Broadway in 1995. After running 2½ years, playing 702 performances, it became the longest-running solo play in Broadway history. It has been performed in more than 30 countries in 16 languages.
