Mike Birbiglia is an actor, comedian and monologuist who has had several off-Broadway shows in New York. But I had never seen one of his highly regarded performances. When his new one transferred to Broadway, I took the opportunity to see it. His “New One” is his new child. This is hilarious and Mike is an amazing performer. His reputation is well deserved. I don’t want to give away his comic bits but he is an excellent writer who will drop in a reference and come back to it later on brilliantly. There is a special moment about halfway through you will remember forever. This is a limited run at the Cort Theatre through January 20 and discounts abound. I highly recommend that you see this show. You’ll be happy you did.
