Gabe Mollica begins his critically-acclaimed off-Broadway show "Solo: A Show About Friendship" with a declaration: "I turned 30 and it occurred to me that I don't have any friends."
Over the next 70 minutes, Gabe dives deep into what it means to have friends in your 30s, his special relationship with Stephen Sondheim, working at a summer camp for children with chronic illnesses, and what happens when you break up with your best friend.
“Solo: A Show About Friendship” is a New York Times Critics’ Pick and Time Out New York notes 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."
"Very funny, sweet not sappy, intricate, Birbiglian storytelling." – Jason Zinoman, The New York Times
"Mollica's extraordinary hour dances all over the creative spaces that lie between stand up and storytelling, between happy and sad, between hilarity and heartbreak." – The Scotsman
