Cherry Lane Late Night presents en encore run of Iris Bahr's solo show in which she plays many characters and explores the one thing we all have in common: death. More…
'I Lost You There' humorously examines how death is viewed and experienced through different lenses, occupations, and cultural norms. 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 share. Ms. Bahr's previous solo show, 'DAI (enough),' won multiple awards and played around the globe.
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.
