Funny, Quirky, Relevant, Intelligent, Raunchy

See it if Entertaining, wise tale of ups and downs in love, sex, marriage. The sexual honesty was compelling.

Don't see it if You're not interested in someone else's sexual life experience.

Entertaining, Funny, Clever, Quirky, Refreshing

See it if you enjoy funny, one person tell-it-all shows with singing and costume changes that frankly bring true experiences to life.

Funny, Raunchy, Quirky, Fluffy, Entertaining

See it if You want a sincere, raunchy memoir-style musical. You want a fun look at the ups & downs of relationships, spouses & children.

Don't see it if You prefer more traditional theatre: this is more downtown cabaret than true-blue theatre. You don't like raunchy humor.

Raunchy, Indulgent, Cliched, Sleazy, Funny

See it if You enjoy cabaret style one actor shows. You like watching a memoir presented with humor and musical accompaniment. You like sexy shows.

Don't see it if You are not into graphic portrayals of sex on stage. You are offended by 4 letter words as part of a comedy performance.

Critic Reviews (9)

Ottawa Citizen
June 20th, 2015
For a previous production

“A funny, insightful and mostly autobiographical show…Elie traverses dating, sex, marriage, and parenthood while searching for her own identity. Such topics are hardly original, but in Elie’s forthright hands, they are fresh and invigorating, giving us new perspectives on common experiences. Elie is especially skilled at setting you up with a warm smile and an 'awwww'-inducing story only to yank the carpet from under you.”

For a previous production

“Ellie certainly hasn’t lost the ability to poke fun at her love life, bringing buckets of cheeky playfulness and a mischievous twinkle in her eye. With plenty of garish costume changes and live-accompanied tracks, including ‘F*ck First’ and ‘I’m Breaking Up With Jesus’, Canadian comedian Ellie is a master of tongue-in-cheek glitz. But don’t be fooled, because behind the bawdy lyrics is a brilliant performer full of character and charm.”

Capital Critics' Circle
June 21st, 2015
For a previous production

“Elie is the consummate performer. Her lighthearted singing sparkles with dramatic energy…Disney-like musical theatre for adults, full of fun and joyous, or not so joyous sex, and lyrics that always find the humor in the most despairing moments…She has a great gift for accents and a greater gift for bringing to life a story that is not always pleasant but that finds gentle humor in human relations…A darling of a show, a show that will make you giggle a lot, and you will leave feeling good."

The New Ottawa Critics
June 22nd, 2015
For a previous production

“A highly polished product that never drops in energy despite its conventional themes…Elie is a born performer who never seems to run out of energy…The endless layers of costumes she goes through are an extra touch that provides extra whimsy to a show that recognizes the need for such an attitude, even through the darker parts. Jackson’s guitar accompaniment provides excellent mood music…‘Shit! I’m in Love with You Again’ may not change your life, but it’s certainly a fun ride.”

Broadway Baby
August 13th, 2017
For a previous production

“Elie is a charming performer, with a veteran’s stage presence…The explicit communication of her sexual history drives much of the story, and by extension the comedy, with mixed results. Some of her jokes are genuinely surprising, and elicit genuine laughs. But at times the comedy relies on her being crass, being loud or both…During the storytelling parts the comedy fails to float an only mildly engaging narrative…The story was, in short, more self-indulgent than it was entertaining."

For a previous production

“As many laugh-inducing moments as can possibly be crammed into a musical comedy…Music is even incorporated into the spoken parts of the show, matching the tone set by Elie’s musings in a way that brings the show into the realm of the extraordinary...Equally impressive is the script...She delivers her delightfully countless supply of jokes with the precision and timing of a Swiss watch…‘Shit, I’m In Love With You Again’ brings this genre of comedy to an incredible new level.”

June 20th, 2015
For a previous production

“‘Sh!t I’m in Love with You Again’ is a funny show, but you’re not just laughing at a clever line in a musical number; you’re laughing because she’s gleefully articulating the kind of thoughts we’ve all had in our relationships, the kind of thoughts we’re usually reluctant to express. It’s clear that Elie is a pro, as well…It’s a dynamic performance, moving easily between melancholy and exuberant, conspiratorial and defiant, precious and lewd, and it makes for a show that’s well worth seeing.”

The Theatre Reader
October 25th, 2016
For a previous production

“A raunchy yet delightful performance…It was arguably Rachelle Elie’s undeniable charm that made her story as compelling as it was, delighting the audience with what could only be seen as a celebration of self-deprecating perseverance in the most endearing way possible… All in all, I’d say Rachelle Elie provided audiences with a performance that although may have seemed stripped down at first, remained compelling throughout its entirety.”

Excalibur
October 28th, 2016
For a previous production

“The casual and intimate setup could have backfired if audience members didn’t connect with the production, but Elie overcame this with her performance…‘Shit, I’m in Love with You Again’ centers around Elie’s energetic performance, but what makes the show special is its message…Elie’s one-woman performance shows that, more than anything, love is not about getting your happily ever after.”
