Gabe Mollica’s ‘Solo: A Show About Friendship’
‘Solo’ begins with a declaration: “I turned 30 and it occurred to me that I don’t have any friends.” Over the next 60 minutes, comedian Gabe Mollica 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, friendship, heartbreak, and Taco Bell.
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.”
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).
