MEMPHIS, TN – March 4, 2019 – Playhouse on the Square presents the regional premiere of Significant Other by Joshua Harmon, hailed as one of the New York Times Top 10 Productions of 2015, March 8-24 at Playhouse on the Square.
Jordan is single and finding Mr. Right is much easier said than done. So, until he meets Mr. Right, he wards off lonely nights with his trio of close-knit girlfriends. As singles’ nights turn into bachelorette parties, Jordan finds supporting the ones you love can be just as impossible as finding love itself.
After his Ostrander Award nominated role as director of Playhouse on the Square’s DreamGirls, Jordan Nichols (Shakespeare in Love, Buyer and Cellar) returns to the stage as lovelorn Jordan Berman.
