"The Chronic Single's Handbook" is a 55-minute solo show about a chronically-single guy who takes a trip around the world hoping to change his luck with love.
The controversial show offers an unapologetic look at how men really feel about sex, love, marriage, and massage parlors.
The story begins in Boston and goes astray in Greece, South Africa, and Southeast Asia. Along the way, audiences are exposed to the stories "Domination for Dummies" and "One Day at the Curious Finger Body Spa."
The show is based on my novel, which was published by The Permanent Press in March 2017. The show has been featured at fringe theater festivals around the U.S., Canada, and in Edinburgh, Scotland. What People Are Saying
"Ross puts on a delightful show that kept the crowd laughing at all the right times. A Fringe show that is worth seeing — for the chronically single or very married alike." -- WatermarkOnline (Orlando fringe festival) "Sharply funny" "Some of life's tougher punchlines" "A quality solo show" -- FringeReview (Edinburgh fringe festival)
"Compelling and amusing (in a guilty sort of way). The cohesion of the show is flawless. Ross is himself a meticulous and seasoned performer, and no moment of the show seems unpolished or misplaced." -- Pittsburgh in the Round (Pittsburgh fringe festival) "A huge success…drew one of the largest audiences we've ever had for a live performance." -- Paul Kuhne, Hostelling International Boston 2017 Shows - Feb. 14-28, New York City - March 31-April 2, Pittsburgh, PA - June 8-18, Ottawa, Canada - July 20-30, Kanas City, MO - Aug. 4-6, Salt Lake City - Aug. 16-27, Indianapolis - Aug. 30-Sept 10,Chicago <buy half-price tickets> - Sep. 13-17, Elgin, Illinois.
