The battle between the sexes has been waged for millennia, and its been fought with everything from violence and religion to the dreaded silent treatment. Now, a long-running, one-man comedy show coming to Broward Center for the Performing Arts Amaturo Theater (201 SW Fifth Ave., Fort Lauderdale) will explore the prehistoric roots of the conflict. In Defending the Caveman, created by original performer Rob Becker in 1991, through his characters modern-day relationship with his wife, Raymond Mc-Anally will explore the prehistoric roles men and women played as hunter and gatherers and how that plays on their behavior today. You definitely get the impression sometimes, says McAnally, that the wife threatened their husband to the theater. But by the end of the show, McAnally says, couples leave happy and with a better understanding of their relationships. Defending the Caveman will premiere today at 5:30 p.m. and again at 8:30 p.m. and will run until New Years Eve. Tickets cost $25 to $35 for most shows. Visit browardcenter.org or ticketmaster.com.
