From the show:
Everyone remembers their first kiss…and second…and maybe their fifth? This bold new comedy reveals the truths about life, love and…sex. Written and performed by Lois Robbins, L.O.V.E.R. portrays one woman’s confessions of what goes on behind closed doors and between the sheets. Directed by Karen Carpenter (Love, Loss, and What I Wore), L.O.V.E.R. is the new play for anyone who’s found love or is still searching.
See it if you want to hear a winsome actress kiss-and-tell about her lifetime of lovers in an amiable but ultimately shallow 1-woman therapy session.
Don't see it if you expect wit, insight or deep thoughts on love, sex, relationships or self-actualization. [This is a pleasant diversion & not much more.]
See it if Robbins tries very hard to get us interested in her voyage from entitled princess to enlightened woman but both script & talent fail her
Don't see it if There are no new insights or discoveries in this story of female empowerment Author/actress has a flair for one-liners; piece as stand-up??

Don't see it if you need a cohesive structure. There were a lot of vignettes that, to me, didn't come together to be worth it overall.
See it if You like one woman autobiographical shows. Acting is excellent.
Don't see it if You don’t like raunchy dialogue. The show is advertised as an off color comedy. It is more of an autobiography.

Also I was thoroughly engaged and enjoyed the whole play.
See it if you are in the mood for a short story narrative on looking back at ones sex life and challenges, wisdoms for women who are trying hard.
Don't see it if you don't like solo shows, although this one is easy to absorb, it's not tedious and we don't get bored watching it.
See it if you like one person confessional shows. The show evolved from a rather banal recitation of relationships to a deeper portrayal of a life.
Don't see it if you want a deep story although the show picked up midway and became far more interesting. Far too many Jewish stereotypes for my taste.
See it if you care about a somewhat spoiled, pampered woman's love life and journey to find herself.
Don't see it if you dislike one-person shows and if you're not interested in watching a vanity project.
See it if a one-woman monologue describing her journey (and many sexual exploits) who finally gains self esteem and self confidence is your cuppa tea.
Don't see it if you are looking for a deeply thoughtful journey although there are some laughs along the way.
