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.
“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 You like great storytelling. This is not the best one-person performing all the characters I’ve seen but it’s one of the best stories!!
Don't see it if You don’t like one person shows. She plays all the characters.
See it if you like intelligent one-woman shows that explore topics of family relationships and our interactions with people who come into our lives.
Don't see it if you don't like simple, quiet, reflective productions.
See it if If you like one woman show with diferent characters. Touching story flavored with black humor. Well written and performed.
Don't see it if If you need more actors on stage to play different characters because you can't appreciate solo shows.
See it if You have an open sense of humor and understand the subtle undertones in a controlled and nuanced performance
Don't see it if you are looking for cheap laughs
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.
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 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 like well acted 1 woman many character story about life, love and loss that somehow get tied together in the end. Well done!
Don't see it if you want entertainment with music and dance and lots of costumes and dancing etc.....
See it if You want to see a one-woman show about death that is well-written, well-acted, funny and poignant.
Don't see it if The topic of death treated in a frank and open manner bothers you.
See it if A small production with a big point of view and one-woman playing multiple character intrigues with quality writing, and a smart twist.
Don't see it if Some plot holes (Pria's ALSO a suicide-hotline worker?) and the accents/character work wasn't as strong as the writing, which detracted.
See it if you like one woman shows where the performer portrays different characters, both male & female, and the narrative unfolds through vignettes.
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 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.
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
See it if You enjoy witnessing one women creating a plethora of characters, different genders, different social classes, different accents, all perfec
Don't see it if you expect a play with narrative and action.
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 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
