About the show

48 million Americans have tried online dating, "#DateMe: An OkCupid Experiment" is the outrageous, true story of one. More…

Robyn Lynne Norris is unlucky in love but determined to understand it better, so she logs on to the world's most popular dating site: OkCupid. Creating 38 "undateable" profiles as an interactive scientific investigation into online dating, Robyn unwittingly sets in motion the social experiment of our generation. Part improv, part sketch comedy. "#DateMe: An OkCupid Experiment" makes one conclusive result: there's no algorithm for love.

Choppy, Entertaining, Fluffy, Engaging

See it if you want harmless escapism abt internet dating. Improv is fun. Music harmless. Occasionally funny, but many obvious jokes. Likable actors.

Don't see it if Robyn's false-profile experiment seems mean-spirited; didn't yield much insight. Superficial treatmt of modern romance. Missed opportunity.

Don't see it if light-hearted comedies about current topics are not for you.

Light, Surprising, Fun, Entertaining, Funny

See it if You want to have a good time - the show is very funny and the cast is great. A play with some great improv thrown in.

Don't see it if I was not expecting much going into this but I had a great time. If you are looking for a traditional play this might not be the right fit.

Entertaining, Fluffy, Delightful, Funny, Clever

See it if You’re looking for a good laugh, some light fun and some silly dating trivia, all wrapped up in some improv sketches and songs.

Don't see it if You’re looking for any kind of serious show. This barely has a plot, more like an idea/theme. But it’s fun, especially if you play along.

Talented cast, Entertaining, Interactive, Unexpected, Quirky

See it if ur compatible with a part-scripted, part-improv'd, irreverent (& sentimental) sketch comedy on online dating & the "types" who engage w/it.

Don't see it if u aren't a match for a frank (and thus a bit raunchy) examination of online dating that is clever but teeters on the edge of pure silliness.

Also To fully enjoy the entire experience, I encourage you to get there a f... Read more Read less

Quirky, Clever, Entertaining, Significant statistics, Adorable

See it if you have ever considered online dating. Apparently most single Americans are at least registered. Excellent use of video & improve

Don't see it if you expect a plot. There are a lot of hilarious characters doing very odd stuff but this is a presentation rather than a play.

Improvisational, Quirky, Great staging, Entertaining, Clever

See it if Energetic cast tells tale of delightful Lonelyheart, reeling from loss, concocts fictional character profiles for online dating experiment.

Don't see it if Innocent catfishing (she doesn't meet her prey) can be deemed cruel; leaving the lonelyhearted in the lurch. Dating site advert throughout.

Also Countdown to tears:"I already have the ring, I just need the finger."

Fluffy, Funny

See it if Comedy of a woman's fake online dating profiles using all real text from other online users. Two improv sessions using audience stories.

See it if You like internet-themed catfishing comedy, or things like Aziz Ansari's book on "modern romance."

Don't see it if This isn't a "play" in a traditional sense, though I suppose it has an arc (she gets a date). Also, there is audience participation.

See it if You’d like to kick back, have fun, and laugh for 2 hours (including intermission). It was interactive and immersive- so people were pulled

Don't see it if On stage- thankfully, I avoided that, but, the brave souls that did partake, were great. Some singing. Some rapping. Some science. There was

Also A semblance of a cohesive story. One sad moment. Overall, it was incre... Read more Read less

Disappointing, Raunchy, Relevant, Funny

See it if you want a funny improv show that is very adult and centers around the world of online dating. There is a lot of audience interaction.

Don't see it if you are looking for a play of any kind. The show is very dependent of audience interaction. The show is very uncomfortable at times.
