Gabe Mollica’s ‘Solo: A Show About Friendship’

February 15, 9 pm10 pm.

Gabe Mollica is a 30 year old storyteller and comedian who is currently doing an off-Broadway show titled ‘Solo: A Show About Friendship.’ It begins with a declaration: “I turned 30 and it occurred to me that I don’t have any friends.” Over 60 minutes, Gabe attempts to explain why, analyzing the ’30-year old bros’ in his life, high-school relationships, his first drunken attempt at stand-up, summers at a camp for children with chronic illnesses, and many more stories of young love, intense fandom for Stephen Sondheim, friendship, heartbreak, and Taco Bell. Watch a short trailer here: https://youtu.be/ysCDS63haEM

Time Out New York also wrote this lovely review for “Solo: A Show About Friendship,” noting that Gabe is “rare in his incisive ability to identify the problem, analyze its contours and find ways to joke about it. You’ll leave the show with a smile on your face and maybe even a new resolution: to hang out with a friend and ask them how they’re doing—really.”

The show is directed and story produced by Greg Walloch (Hasan Minhaj: Homecoming King) and produced by Caitlin Cook (Sean Patton: Number One) and Mahmood Alladadweh. Ophira Eisenberg (NPR) and Devin Delliquanti (The Daily Show) are creative consultants. Executive producer is Abey Weitzman (playwright and winner of Scholastic’s National American Voices Medal). Since opening, ‘SOLO’ has been named a New York Times Critic’s Pick and has been praised by WNYC/Gothamist’s Kerry Shaw, who called it “funny and heartfelt, with surprises along the way.”
