“Meet Jordan Berman. He’s single. And he has a date with a co-worker to see a documentary about the Franco-Prussian war,” according to production notes. “At least, he thinks it’s a date. Significant Other follows Jordan and his three closest friends as they navigate love, friendship and New York in the twenty-something years.”

Significant Other is Roundabout’s second new play to transfer to Broadway, following the success of Stephen Karam’s Tony Award-winning The Humans.
