My Girlfriend’s Boyfriend, written by and starring Mike Birbiglia and directed by Seth Barrish, had 80 sold out performances at the Barrow Street Theatre, was a critics pick in The New York Times and went on to win the Lucille Lortel award for best solo show Off-Broadway.
It was performed in Australia, Canada, London, as well as in 75 theaters across America. It played a sold out two-week run at the Soho Theatre in London, received four-star reviews from in The Guardian, The Times, The Independent, and The London Evening Standard and went on to be named “Comedy Of The Year 2012” by Time Out London.
After a sold out run at the Victory Garden Theatre in Chicago, Hedy Weiss of the Chicago Sun Times wrote, "no written description can do full justice to the spirit of Mike Birbiglia and what he does in his winningly honest, ruefully funny, seamlessly performed show.”
"Genuinely heartrending and laugh out loud. ★★★★" Time Out New York
"Beautifully observed and deftly delivered. ★★★★" Evening Standard
"Ridiculously enjoyable." New York Times
"His compelling wit finds poetry and poignancy. ★★★★" Sydney Morning Herald
"A must-see of the festival."
