'I Lost You There' humorously examines how death is viewed and experienced through different lenses, occupations, and cultural norms. Through her brand of witty pathos, Bahr brings to life moving and comic characters whose lives interconnect in surprising ways, shining a light on the one aspect of our existence that we all have in common. Ms. Bahr's previous solo show, 'DAI (enough),' won multiple awards and played around the globe.

Funny, Edgy, Thought-provoking, Refreshing, Entertaining

See it if Enjoy mentally creating a whole from many parts. Each character's personality adds to an event of which some of them are not even aware.

Don't see it if you dislike one person shows where the performer becomes many characters. Also it is very short, under an hour.

Funny, Absorbing, Clever, Great acting, Riveting

See it if You enjoy one person shows, and don't mind crying and laughing in the same minute

Don't see it if The thought of death and a little dark humor gets to you

Ambitious, Great acting, Great writing, Outstanding character work, Tightly knit storyline

See it if one woman show with lots of extremely varied characters portraying a web of life interests you

Don't see it if Listening to highly detailed imaginings is not your thing

Funny, Absorbing, Great acting, Great writing, Entertaining

See it if You want to see a solo show with a great performer. You want to hear good impersonations. You want to hear a very good touching story.

Don't see it if You don't like solo performances. You don't like impersonations. You don't want to hear a great touching story.

79
Absorbing, Clever, Great acting, Intelligent, Great writing

See it if You want just an hour of being absorbed by a very talented single performer displaying comfort with an uncomfortable subject

Don't see it if You want more than a one person show and don't enjoy dark humor

Funny, Clever, Thought-provoking, Relevant

See it if Enjoy one-woman shows, with many characters portrayed, like shows by Sarah Jones or Anna Deavere Smith, although this was as professional

Don't see it if You prefer shows with many characters and a strong narrative

Also Not all of the sketches worked, with the weakest one being the one wit... Read more Read less

Absorbing, Great acting, Touching

See it if Highly skilled actress embodies many diverse characters in a funny, sweet exploration of illness and death - a terrific one-actor show

Don't see it if You don't want to see a show heavy on themes of grief, death and/or illness

81
Clever, Great acting, Intense, Great writing, Confusing

See it if You like solo shows and topics about love & death. Great acting for playing multiple roles.

Don't see it if You don't like one-woman shows. The story is a bit confusing and the scenes don't connect well with each other at certain points.

Funny, Clever, Intelligent, Engaging, Strong acting

See it if you're open to solo shows; ILYT is well written and very well performed. Multiple characters provide viewpoints on the central story. Clever

Don't see it if you want an education (like ADS's Notes Fr the Field). ILYT is a rambling look at grief, love, death, etc. Some sketches don't quite work.

Funny, Ambitious, Slow

See it if You enjoy one man shows where the actor plays multiple parts. You like stories investigating mortality and relationships.

Don't see it if You want action or gut busting comedy. This is a fairly subdued piece where nothing much happens.

76
Intelligent, Resonant, Solid

See it if You like a quality one woman show. She does absorbing characters with a nice wrap around at the end. 60 minutes long. All around solid show.

Don't see it if You don't like one person shows.

81
Poignant, Humorous, Bittersweet, Beautifully played

See it if you like one person shows played with virtuosity by a skilled actor; can find humor in death, suicidal wishes, human faults & foibles

Don't see it if you can't laugh at suicidal feelings, family & relationship dysfunction, grief, neediness and loss; want a mindless comedy show

81
Absorbing, Clever, Intelligent, Relevant, Resonant

See it if interweaving of several individual stories relating to a serious subject matter

Don't see it if you prefer seeing something of a lighter nature

Great acting, Intelligent, Quirky, Entertaining

See it if you'll enjoy a 1 woman show that focuses on death and grief. The actress plays several different people whose lives are interconnected.

Don't see it if you dislike one person shows; you prefer fully staged productions; you prefer more optimistic productions.

Funny, Clever, Great acting, Thought-provoking, Entertaining

See it if You enjoy one-person, multi-character shows. You are interested in seeing a humorous take on death, loss and grief.

Don't see it if You are upset by the discussion of death and loss (there is nothing graphic here, but several characters die and/or discuss death).

Also This was a well-written, well-acted show. It cleverly tells one story ... Read more Read less

Don't see it if you prefer a larger production & don't have the ability to appreciate a simpler, nicely written show.
