In this solo comedy, thirty-eight year old New Yorker Rachel Yardley's ticking biological clock propels her into doing something that goes against everything she believes in: online dating. More…
Challenged by her sister’s dare to meet 50 men in three months, Rachel rises to the occasion. While desperately speed dating at Starbucks, she questions her past choices in ex-boyfriends, abandonment issues with her father, and why the only unconditional love she has ever known is with her dog.
"A vividly-detailed autobiography of a middle-aged woman who describes her past journeys and struggles in life...Plenty of humor along the way, but also quite a few sad moments...Not all the jokes landed, but there were plenty others that did, and the more emotional parts of the play certainly resonated...Kasper takes the audience with her on her journey with captivating energy...Elliot stages this show wonderfully." Full Review
"Kasper recounts how she staggered through an online dating death march of Mr. Wrongs. Her war stories are mostly horrifyingly funny...What keep '45 Coffee Dates' from being simply an elongated stand-up comedy routine are her stories that swerve into the heartbreaking...And just when it seems as if her comic misery will go on forever, the play swerves again, this time into a happy world where her dreams actually do come true. She earns them." Full Review
See it if you'd like a funny show about dating in NYC; you're a fan of Sex and the City or HBO's Girls; you're a woman who's done online dating.
Don't see it if you only appreciate very polished productions.
See it if you want to have a fun girl;s night out or have ever been in the dating scene.
Don't see it if you don't like 1 person shows. However, at times, the actress played several parts, by having conversations, so it wasn't just a monologue
Also We enjoyed it. The actress definitely gave it her all.
See it if You can relate to a 30 something in NYC. You want to empathize with one woman's story. You want a simple night out with girlfriends.
Don't see it if You don't want to hear the story of one woman. You don't like one woman shows. You are looking for a ritzy production.
See it if Dated content that can easily be fixed with some updating.Nothing that a dating apps can’t fix.Actress is very talented + funny.
Don't see it if U can’t stand when the script doesn’t flow naturally out of the actor ‘s mouth. Repeting a word twice more than 8 times, it can b annoying.
See it if you fancy "bad date" anecdotes and / or sympathize with a 39-year-old woman's goal to find a husband
Don't see it if you'd enjoy a more polished piece or a "personal journey" with some insight and humility stirred in
See it if Ur looking to see exactly what the title describes w/out much fresh insight/originality. Upbeat music adds to story, so if u can empathize,
Don't see it if it might interest you. Falls short of expectation. Won't find much new meaning. Had thought, given set up, situation would be ripe 4 comedy~
See it if You want to hear about online dating experiences. If you can relate to the subject matter.
Don't see it if You want a big production. If you can't easily climb stairs- 3rd floor walk-up. You want great acting and don't mind cliched stories.
See it if You want to hear/learn about online dating experience in the city, expected to be more funny, hate to give a bad review but was dissapointed
Don't see it if One act / one actor play, hear details of depressing NY dating scene, (1 man for every 5 women???), hopeless 45 attempts of online dating
See it if You Like amateur 1 person acts that play multiple roles, w some decent music
Don't see it if You don’t like poorly written plays where the acting is ok and the actress makes a bunch of mistakes
See it if If you want to hear what one bad date has to say her bad dates. Spoiler alert: happy ending. Highlight: upbeat hit songs on the soundtrack.
Don't see it if Her talent is not revealed in this performance.
See it if Eighties nostalgia and cliche dating horror stories are your comfort food.
Don't see it if You're looking for even an iota of fresh insight into dating and coupling. This is the story of a Princess seeking her Prince. Zzzz.
See it if You have ever dated, online or otherwise - you'll recognize some of these characters. I was laughing and crying - and that's a good thing.
Don't see it if you want something slick - the writer covers topics that effect all of us - love, loss, family dynamics and the search for ourselves
