Women of the world, don’t give up hope just yet.
Some sense can perhaps be made out of the workings of the male mind, after all.
Celebrated playwright and actor Robert Dubac provides the perfect opportunity with “The Male Intellect: An Oxymoron?” Dubac’s play actually sets the stage in one man’s brain and explores its inner workings.
Although the title may draw mostly women to the theater, this romantic comedy is not just for the ladies.
Both sexes have received the production with praise nationwide, with sold-out houses in Boston, Chicago and Denver.
Miles Stroth carries out the one-man show as Bobby, a man recently kicked to the curb by his fiancée and left to wonder what happened.
Five male stereotypes, each played by Stroth, visit Bobby in the deep subconscious of his brain and attempt to advise him as to how he should handle his unfortunate situation.
Stroth is hilarious as every personality, although some are less tolerable than others, i.e. the chauvinistic retired Colonel from the South.
Bobby’s other visitors include a 123-year-old bachelor named Mr. Linger, as well as Jean-Michel, who prefers to woo women with the language of love.
Then there’s Fast Eddie, whose name says it all, and the rather un-regal Ronnie Cabrezzi.
“The Male Intellect” opens on Feb. 5 and runs through March 16 at the Society Hill Playhouse, 507 South Eighth St. For tickets call 215-923-0210.
