"What do women want?"
That's the question Robert Dubac has been tackling for many months now in various stagings of his one-man play, The Male Intellect (an oxymoron?). Obviously, women -- and men -- want the show, since it enjoyed an extended run at Boston's 57 Theatre a year ago and now arrives at Albany, NY's Capital Repertory, Feb. 17-March 21, after one pay-what-you-can preview Feb. 16.
Dubac plays Bobby, a man who has been inexplicably dumped by the woman of his dreams. Why? Unable to answer the question himself, he turns to his overly masculine role-models (all played by Dubac) and the advice they've given to him over the years.
Some of these role models include:
Jean-Michel, who spouts out mindless metaphors and double talk while expounding that communication is way to a woman's heart.
Old Mr. Linger, a 123-year-old bachelor still searching for his perfect woman...a mermaid.
Fast Eddie, a slick-talking "love 'em and leave 'em" kind of guy.
Dubac has appeared in numerous films ("After the Game," "Sketch Artist") and television roles ("Loving," "Growing Pains," "Life Goes On"). Tickets for The Male Intellect (an oxymoron) can be purchased by calling (518) 445-7469.
