It's almost a genre at this point: solo shows about the way men and women relate. Rob Becker started the trend with Defending the Caveman, and John Gray brought his Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Venus to Broadway last year. Returning to Denver, CO, Jan. 21, is another popular addition to the canon, The Male Intellect (An Oxymoron).
Robert Dubac's one-man show first played Denver in 1996 and then came to Chicago for nine months. Now Dubac returns and renews his attempt to answer the age-old question, "What do women want?"
The plot has the lead character confused over the rejection of his marriage proposal. For help he turns to five male chauvenist mentors, including a 123-year-old bachelor, a double-talking Frenchman, and the aptly-named Fast Eddie.
Produced by Metropolitan Entertainment Group, JAM Productions and Belkin Productions, The Male Intellect runs Jan. 21-24 at the Denver Center's Auditorium Theatre, 1245 Champa St.
