A block of New York's West 44th Street in the heart of the theatre district was renamed "Caveman Way" July 18 in honor of the Broadway show Rob Becker's Defending the Caveman, which became the longest-running non-musical solo performance in Broadway history that day. A sign to that effect was installed on the southwest corner of Broadway and 44th Street, and will remain for a month or two, according to production spokesman Joel W. Dein.
The unveiling of the sign took place 11:30 AM July 18. Before the curtain at that evening's performance, Wally Rubin, director of theatre for the Mayor's Office of Film, Theatre and Broadcasting read a proclamation from Mayor Rudolph Giuliani, proclaiming July 18 "Caveman Day" in New York.
The one-man show is a comic monologue about relationships between men and women.
