According to Second Stage notes, "At an age when most people are discovering what they want to do with their lives, Porter [Topher Grace] has been married and divorced, earned seven figures as a corporate 'ninja,' and had a nervous breakdown. It's been four years since he's had a job or a date, and he's decided to give life another shot. Lonely, I'm Not is a comic journey that follows Porter as he meets an ambitious young businesswoman [Thirlby] who is overcoming her own obstacles to emotional success."

Second Stage's mainstage Tony Kiser Theatre is at 305 West 43rd Street.
