Significant Other provides bittersweet laughs while desperately seeking Mr. Right



The pre-show music is what I noticed first upon arriving to see the Midwest premiere of Joshua Harmon's play, Significant Other, which is currently being presented by Chicago's About Face Theatre and Theater Wit. I assume that director Keira Fromm selected the groovy tunes, which included such early '80s hits as David Bowie's "Modern Love" and "Come On Eileen" by Dexys Midnight Runners. They transported me back to my college days, and the intermission music continued to bring up fond memories of the past. However, some of the friendships I made back then did not last once we graduated and went in different directions in life. People change and drift apart, and it's not always easy to accept. And this painful realization is what Significant Other is about.
