Women Are Crazy Because Men Are A**Holes, according to press notes, "introduces audiences to five couples who are gathering for a brunch to celebrate the occasion of Nicole finally meeting Dylan after two months of internet courting. Nicole, before even seeing Dylan face to face, has planned her life with him and cannot wait for her friends to meet her soul mate. Her friends, however, may not be the best people to have at this 'special occasion' as each person is caught in their own unique web of lovelorn madness. Secrets are revealed, sex is militarized, hearts are broken and everyone’s sanity will be questioned. Even before Nicole gets her first kiss, this wild comedy will make her, and the audience, question what is a romantic relationship and if anyone can be less than crazy for trying to be a part of one."
Details about the Off-Broadway run have yet to be announced.
