Sex and the City taught us how much it can suck to be a single woman in the city. And now Mike Birbiglia’s My Girlfriend’s Boyfriend proves that it’s not all that much simpler to be a single man. Birbiglia, the writer-performer of the hit show Sleepwalk With Me, which was about his real-life problems with somnambulism, shares his honest, self-deprecating tales of trying to find the right girl, from the schoolyard to adulthood. But don’t pity him too much—he’s happily married now. Seth Barrish directs the heartache.
Wednesdays-Saturdays, 8 p.m.; Saturdays, Sundays, 4 p.m. Starts: March 18. Continues through June 25, 2011
