Cliched, Quirky, Indulgent, Ambitious

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.

Thought-provoking, Resonant, Entertaining

See it if you like thinking about relationship issues, as well as topics relating to one's self-exploration

Don't see it if you want a very strong soliloquy or a very strong one woman show, it's not that, but it's good enough

"Usually, this sort of confessional memory piece is centered about a profound personal challenge, social issue, or obsession. This is the tale of an unremarkable life, unremarkably told. It isn't terrible so much as it is mystifying."

2 of 5 Stars "From Boy Crazy to Womanly and Wily: Lois Robbins wrote and stars in a mostly autobiographical look at a woman's relationships through life"

September 18th, 2019

"Written and performed by Lois Robbins (best known up till now for her long stints on three soap operas), 'L.O.V.E.R.' is an old-fashioned confessional tale of a "liberated" woman who spends her life discovering that love and sex are not necessarily the same thing."

"There's both plenty of humor and sorrow in her long and winding road, and Robbins is an extremely engaging storyteller."

Theatre's Leiter Side
September 11th, 2019

"Robbins is polished and pleasant, but (a few moments of genuineness aside) she comes across more as an actress than the spontaneously charming person she needs to be. Nor is she helped by material filled with commonplaces that aren't enhanced by her occasional tendency to giggle."
