The Thing About Men to Close on February 15
Based on the 1986 West German film Men by Doris Dörrie, the musical concerns an advertising executive who's unfaithful to his wife but who nevertheless tries deperately to win back her affections when she leaves him to begin a romance with another man.
In his review of the show for TheaterMania, David Finkle wrote that "The Thing About Men deserves at least a modest run in order that the talented DiPietro and Roberts may get more recognition than they've received thus far from musical comedy truffle hounds. DiPietro has a certain facility for the well-turned remark and the comic set-up, both in his book scenes and his lyrics. Roberts has a knack for tossing off easy tunes, even if sometimes his gripping melodic lines don't add up to actual finished songs."
