Significant Other

by Joshua Harmon

Gideon stars in Joshua Harmon’s new play “Significant Other.” His performance has been widely critically acclaimed, with raves from The New York Times, Variety and the Hollywood Reporter. In the play, Glick stars as Jordan Berman, a gay man aching for love in his twenties in New York City. The show is a dark comedy, a hilarious and heart-wrenching play chronicling his single life with his trio of close-knit girlfriends as singles’ nights turn into bachelorette parties, then weddings for everyone but him. It is a tour de force performance with Glick being on stage for every single moment of the play. Interview at 692 Broadway in NYC for BUILD Series.

Playwright Joshua Harmon follows ‘Bad Jews’ with this serio-comedy about a young gay man confronting his solitude as his besties transition into marriage and motherhood.  Directed by Trip Cullman, the cast featured Sas Goldberg, Gideon Glick, Carra Paterson, Lindsay Mendez, Luke Smith, John Behlmann and Barbara Barrie. The play involves the lives of four college friends and their search for relationships. It was included in the New York Times Top Ten Productions of 2015. Significant Other is forthcoming from Samuel French.
