“Bahr has the gift of combining intelligence with hilarity. Here, she dispenses the enviable gift in huge dollops...Truth is, whereas so many sketches of this sort go on beyond their welcome—even in today’s seemingly formulaic in-quick-out-quick 90-minuters—Bahr, at The Cherry Lane Theatre, hews to an almost forgotten show-biz rule: Always leave them wanting more." Full Review
"Bahr keeps her characters wonderfully life-sized, never overplaying or overwriting them...Her subtlety turns out to be a double-edged sword, however. When a character appears, we’re not always sure, at least not at first, whether it’s a new character or one we’ve seen before...‘I Lost You There’ is more humorous than funny. There are no brilliant zingers or laugh-out-loud one liners. But there is a somewhat sophisticated comic sensibility." Full Review
See it if Like solo play w 1 actor-many parts. This is a well-crafted and performed. Much is funny/touching, but is notable for deft character work.
Don't see it if Don't like shows where death is explored from varying viewpoints, want to be deeply moved or laugh out loud.
See it if enjoy shows where one person takes on the role of many different personalities whose lives interconnect and she does it seemlessly
Don't see it if you don't like one person shows or any dialogue that includes death
See it if Well crafted story about different people confronting death. Has a lot to say: are we burdened, relieved? Uses humor and surprise.
Don't see it if You want a longer show, or a non-solo piece. The show keeps you entertained, leaving you to think about the meaning afterward.
See it if You want to see a brilliant one-woman show that brings a cast of quirky characters to vivid life. For me it was genius!
Don't see it if One person creating a whole cast of characters with different accents and speech patterns just isn't your thing.

Don't see it if you are not a fan of the intimate theater experience, or if you are not interested in seeing shows that deal with death.
See it if You enjoy one person becoming many people to explore a human condition, using only laughter and compassion as tools.
Don't see it if You want a flashy production, need absolutes, happy endings, props...anything but a bare stage. This is just talent and a spotlight.

Don't see it if you expect a play with narrative and action.

Don't see it if The topic of death treated in a frank and open manner bothers you.

Don't see it if you don't like simple, quiet, reflective productions.
See it if You enjoy an intelligent but humorous approach to a life changing event by a talented writer/thespian, entertaining afternoon
Don't see it if If short and sweet is too quick for you or if you prefer ensembles or don't wish to explore heavy topic's in a show setting.
See it if you like one person shows in which an excellent actor plays multiple parts men and women both, plays that require thinking and discernment
Don't see it if you don't like one person shows, are easily confused by unreliable narrators with an air of mystery, don't like abrupt, open-ended endings
See it if you enjoy a one-woman show where she masters a number of characters by changing voice and mannerisms. Explores a tough subject with humor.
Don't see it if you are bothered by treating death in a hilarious way.
See it if to discover & support Iris Bahr (writing, acting). Engaging talent, but it felt like an audition piece.
Don't see it if Her story of love & loss is intimate but her voice is not specific/strong enough to break through in the context of today's atrocities.
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.
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
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.
See it if you're up for a thoughtful one-woman show on death/loss of a loved one that has a somewhat quirky, atypical approach.
Don't see it if you don't like people who don't have their shit together, but are trying. You need nonstop laughs. You've just lost a loved one (too soon?).
