Theatre reviews: Defending the Caveman
Saturday 27 February 1999
Apollo Theatre, London W1 (0171-494 5070)
Welcome to the twilight world of the heterosexual. Rob Becker's Broadway solo is a cross between a self-help guide to the sex war and a stand-up routine. Here it's in the appealing hands of Mark Little, with his unusually benign, anarchic Yogi Bear quality. He times the well-observed, often funny gags beautifully, but even he cannot disguise the American tone. It may try to be even-handed in the gender agenda, but the implicit shirking of male responsibilities marks it out as being written by a man.
Books And it is whizzpopping!
