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'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.
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 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.
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 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 Read more
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
"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."
“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."
