Stone Age of Enlighenment

Paleolithic dieting (or noshing on animal protein and edible plants that would have been available to prehistoric man) has caught fire in the past few years. Whether you’ve joined the craze or not, you can further kick it old school by catching the hit one-man show Defending the Caveman on Thursday, November 1, at 8 p.m.

Phoenix Theatre’s take on the solo show that still reigns as the longest running Broadway show of its kind might touch upon the appetite of primitive man, but it’s much more about connecting the dots between how men relate to women and the world around them and the days of loincloths and knuckle-dragging. Valley actor and Renaissance man Gene Ganssle tackles the title role written and originated by comedian Rob Becker.

Wednesdays, 7:30 p.m.; Thursdays, 7:30 p.m.; Fridays, 8 p.m.; Saturdays, 3 & 8 p.m.; Sundays, 2 p.m.; Sun., Nov. 11, 6:30 p.m.; Saturdays, 8 p.m. Starts: Oct. 31. Continues through Nov. 24, 2012
