Disappointing, Un-insightful, One person show, Falls short, Some good writing

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~

Great writing, Entertaining, Great acting, Dated, Caffeinated

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.

"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."

"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."
