    In ‘Significant Other,’ the Gay Best Friend Is the Odd Man Out

    Ben Brantley

    March 2, 2017: The familiar and (you thought) anachronistic plaint, “Always a bridesmaid, never a bride,” assumes an extra degree of pain in Joshua Harmon’s Significant Other, the bubbly, teary comedy that opened on Thursday night at the Booth Theater. It’s bad enough that Jordan Berman’s closest buddies, all women, are getting married.

    ‘Significant Other’: Three Weddings and a Pity Party

    Joe Dziemianowicz

    March 2, 2017: Call it the Great White Wedding Way. Significant Other follows gay millennial Jordan Berman (Gideon Glick) as his three BFFs — straight women played by Sas Goldberg, Rebecca Naomi Jones and Lindsay Mendez — one by one tie the knot. So many ivory gowns. So much cake. So much angst when Jordan’s left to fend for himself in New York.

    Matt Windman

    March 2, 2017: Can watching your best friends go off and get married while you are single and having trouble even scoring a date lead to a nervous breakdown? That’s nearly the case in Joshua Harmon’s Significant Other, a sweet and sour comedic drama about and intended for millennials in their late 20s living in New York who are in the midst of making the transition from post-college dating and late night partying to marching down the aisle.

    'Significant Other': Theater Review

    David Rooney

    March 2, 2017: Early in Significant Other, a lovely, bittersweet comedy about romantic yearning, the young gay central character, Jordan Berman, has a hypothetical discussion with his best gal pal about the ideal cheesy wedding song, which guests in the know would realize is intended ironically. Mariah? Celine? Whitney? "Whitney. Is not. Ironic," he states emphatically, with a seriousness that extends to his own frustrated dreams of finding the perfect happily-ever-after union. Meanwhile, chronic wedding fatigue has entered his bloodstream, throwing Jordan's encroaching loneliness into stark relief as his female college friends waltz down the aisle one by one.

    ‘Significant Other’ Review: A Lovely, Finely Tuned Party-Play

    Linda Winer

    March 2, 2017: Significant Other is a slick, well-made, funny-sad new Broadway comedy, the kind that doesn’t often get a first-rate commercial production these days. At its soft heart, however, the play is really a 21st century theater throwback to that old song that cried, “Those wedding bells are breaking up that old gang of mine.”
