Katarina is a restless, beautiful young woman who is trapped in a mundane daily routine and a passionless relationship. She meets Adam, a celebrated conductor at a prestigious opera house and climbs the social ladder in search of an enlightened, heightened, and pure reality. 'Beloved' depicts the challenges of a modern woman in search of herself and the shifting power dynamic that exists between Katarina and a successful older man that she admires. Is this a passionate love affair or a brutal game of power, gender and class?
See it if You want to see a one person show that’s NOT an autobiographical show. A fun story, a little hard to follow at times.
Don't see it if You want a seamless show. Not sure if the trouble comes from the translation or actor error but some points were confusing or uneven.

Don't see it if you want to hear every word spoken. I missed much from row H due to a soft voice and some background music.
See it if OK with fearless actress portraying woman on the edge & sliding to madness over an affair. Billed as dark comedy, but I found it just dark.
Don't see it if Don't like solo shows, acted-out descriptions of graphic sex, or annoyed if actor plays constantly with hair. Edgy, odd, unresolved plot.

Don't see it if you don't like solo performances. Or if you want clear, concise storytelling. This one is very messy with unexpected twists & turns.
Also An award worthy performance.
See it if you enjoy strong acting (and a solid script). Dilorenzo holds your attention nonstop for 90 minutes - she's funny, quirky and a little scary

See it if you like a one woman show, about a woman who is very shallow, selfish and without scruples. I could not become interested in this character.
Don't see it if you do not like one person shows or shows with explicit dialogue. I found the explicit dialogue as boring as actress's monotone voice.
