Significant Other was a NY Times Critic’s Pick when it premiered last summer at Roundabout Theatre Company. Charles Isherwood, writing in the New York Times, called it “an entirely delightful new play, as richly funny as it is ultimately heart-stirring.” Time Out (Adam Feldman) agreed, noting “as funny as Harmon’s breakthrough play Bad Jews, Significant Other is a timely, well-observed, sharp but bittersweet New York comedy; the play’s main assets are the keenness of the writing, studded with wry one-liners, and the humanity of the performances.” The New York Observer (Rex Reed) declared: “Significant Other is for everyone looking for a timeshare in the space we all occupy when life moves faster than we do. A wonderful play about unrequited love, offered with warmth and without sentimentality. I doubt if there is anyone who is unable to relate profoundly to the characters in this play and what they go through.” The Hollywood Reporter (David Rooney) summed it up as follows: “A funny-sad, vibrantly contemporary lonely-heart portrait.” Significant Other began at Roundabout Theatre Company following the professional debut and world premiere of Joshua Harmon's play Bad Jews at Roundabout Underground’s Black Box in fall 2012.
