Directed by Seth Barrish, the production will officially open March 31.

In Mike Birbiglia's My Girlfriend's Boyfriend, press notes state, "Mike shares a lifetime of romantic blunders and miscues that most adults would spend a lifetime trying to forget. On this painfully honest journey, Mike struggles to find reason in an area where it may be impossible to find — love."

The production features set design by Beowulf Boritt.

Mike Birbiglia's My Girlfriend's Boyfriend marks Birbiglia's return to the New York stage after his acclaimed Off-Broadway engagement in Sleepwalk With Me, for which he was nominated for the Drama Desk and Outer Critic Circle awards and was the recipient of a Nightlife Award for his performance.

"After Sleepwalk With Me, I wasn't sure I'd do another play like it. But in developing some pieces for 'This American Life' and touring the last two years, I developed a show that I am really proud of," he said in a recent statement. "I performed My Girlfriend's Boyfriend in Montreal, Sydney, San Francisco, and now I'm thrilled to be bringing it to New York. It's the most cynically optimistic piece that I could write about love. It's a love letter to love. And I hope people love it. Or at least 'like' like it."

Tickets are priced $49.50 with premium seating available. All tickets during previews (March 18-30) are $35.50. Tickets can be purchased by visiting SmartTix at www.SmartTix.com or by calling (212) 868-4444. For more information visit www.GirlfriendsBoyfriend.com.

The Barrow Street Theatre is located at 27 Barrow Street.
