About the show

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.

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.

Great acting, Great writing, Dated, Entertaining, 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.

Disappointing, Falls short, Un-insightful, One person show, 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~

Cliched, Awkward, Self-indulgent, Unfunny

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.

Disappointing, Slow, Some funny parts

See it if You like small theater,and you have time. Show is ok.

Don't see it if It on the three floor, you have to walk. It not very funny.

Also The actress worked and give her all. The show just is a work in progre... Read more Read less

Romantic, Disappointing, Excruciating, Slow, Dated

See it if a woman's journey to happiness re-enacted over 85 minutes without interruption appeals to you.

Don't see it if you value your time. The walk to the third floor is a big mistake. Only go inside the theater if you have a cyanide pill in your pocket.

Also This was pure torture. A few chuckles might come your way if you are l... Read more Read less

Hilarious, Entertaining, Moving, affecting, a laugh/cry show

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.

Also My high score is partly due to the subject matter. I too went on score... Read more Read less

Entertaining, Fluffy, Solo show, One woman's dating game, Caffeinated

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

Also Quibble: Too many lines were muffed by the performer -- and this reall... Read more Read less

Funny, Quirky

See it if It was funny sometimes , thought there would be more to it , sometimes a little stupid

Don't see it if If you are not a woman

Quirky, Romantic, Cliched, Uneven, Work-in-progress

See it if you've had recent experiences with online dating or can appreciate a hard-working actor.

Don't see it if you want a theater spectacle.

Also Clearly this is a labor of life for its writer/star. There is a lot of... Read more Read less

Funny, Clever, Entertaining

See it if If you want to laugh a lot and have a great time

Don't see it if If you don't have a sense of humor

Indulgent, Cliched, Dated, Whitebread

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.

Disappointing, Cliched, Slow, Dated, Partially funny

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

Disappointing, Cliched, Slow

See it if You are a friend of the cast/staff. Providing moral support is an honorable thing.

Don't see it if Not well written or performed. We really enjoy single person performance art. This missed the mark.

Funny, Clever, Great acting, Refreshing, Entertaining

See it if You enjoy an entertaining story about finding love.

Don't see it if You don't like one person shows.


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.

Funny, Quirky, Relevant

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.

Indulgent, Disappointing, Cliched

See it if you want to support risk-taking by an individual and hear a heartfelt exposition of her personal story.

Don't see it if you hope to hear any insight or originality.

Funny, Ambitious, Cliched, Entertaining

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.

Romantic, Banal, Disappointing, Cliched, Overrated

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

Funny, Quirky, Resonant

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

See it if This one woman show was thoughtfully written with excellent character development supported by great acting and extremely poignant moments

Don't see it if Don't see it if you need the frills of full blown theatre and struggle to appreciate the efforts and unique skills of the solo performer

Funny, Clever, Great acting, Great writing, Entertaining
