Las Vegas Police Protection Association Members Invited to See the Show FREE in August
 
LAS VEGAS – Defending the Caveman, the longest running solo play in Broadway history donated $2,655 to the Injured Police Officers Fund (IPOF) in support of families for fallen Las Vegas Metro Police Department (LVMPD) officers Alyn Beck and Igor Soldo. The donation is from the patrons, cast and crew of Defending the Caveman at Harrah’s Las Vegas.
 
“Thank you Defending the Caveman. It’s wonderful to see to see tourists, as well as locals supporting our cause,” said Richard Golgart, IPOF president. “When all is said and done, the outpour of donations – no matter how small or large – adds up to tremendous support for those families who have lost a loved one that dedicated their life to protect and serve our community.”
 
Defending the Caveman, a hilariously insightful play about the ways men and women relate - fight, laugh and love - will honor members of the Las Vegas Police Protection Association with complimentary admission through August 31.
 
“Our Defending the Caveman team felt in our hearts we must offer our officers a place where they can find solace in a few hours of laughter,” said producer John Bentham. “As a long-standing member of the community, our hearts go out to the families, friends and colleagues of the fallen.”

“Defending the Caveman,” Broadway’s smash hit about the sexes, is an international hit with productions in 30 countries, and more than 15 languages, and originally opened in San Francisco in 1991, moving to Broadway in 1995. Comedian Rob Becker wrote Defending the Caveman over a three-year period during which he made an informal study of anthropology, prehistory, psychology, sociology and mythology. This prehistoric look at the battle of the sexes is full of hilarious scenarios that celebrate the differences between men and women.
