Tate Entertainment is presenting the engagement at The Town Hall, half a block from Times Square, on 43rd Street. The popular observational show opened at Broadway's Helen Hayes Theatre March 1, 1995, and ran through June 1997. A tour followed. The work was first seen in San Francisco in 1991. An estimated two million people have taken in the Caveman experience.

* The Town Hall offers eclectic programming — lectures, film, dance, rock, comedy, theatre and more — year round. About 90 percent of the work seen there is by rental arrangement. Wealthy suffragists built The Town Hall — designed by McKim, Mead and White — in 1921 as a place to meet, share ideas and hear speakers. It was a setting for "town meetings" that were broadcast by NBC. The hall's acoustics proved prime for concerts and the building evolved into a concert and performance house over the years. New York University helped revive the space in the 1970s as its current multi-disciplinary house. It achieved landmark status in 1978.
