"Dattner’s act is thoughtful, hilarious, and very brave...But Dattner often forgets that on this particular occasion, she’s working in a theatre instead of a comedy club...Dattner stops just short of allowing herself to be that vulnerable...'The Oy of Sex' has plenty of funny moments to go around. I’m sure it’s a very successful show in a comedy club. But in a theater, it has the potential to be more than just a funny comedy show." Full Review
"Dattner is smart, funny, entertaining, talented and full of energy...The confluence of a great writer with a talented actor can bring out the depth that comes with the desperate actions of an addict wrapped up with self-effacing humor. Dattner’s range remains in the realm of stand-up, and make no mistake she is quite funny...While she is quite adept at choreographing her use of a microphone, it got between her and the audience, limiting her range of emotion." Full Review
for a previous production "Dattner herself is a delight to watch, and her enthusiasm is intoxicating. She is an extremely animated and high-energy performer and really owns the space available...But even with this larger-than-life energy she still manages to come off as a bit shy and reserved...If you’re searching for raunchy fun with a positive message, 'The Oy of Sex' delivers."

See it if you want to hear very honest, pretty funny and sometimes embarassing stories about one woman's sexual journey, in a very intimate setting.
Don't see it if you're uncomfortable with eye contact and being addressed directly by the actress. Not laugh out loud funny but some ah-ha moments.
See it if You want to fall in love — with Alicia Dattner, or yourself or simply the comedy of life and living. Very funny, edgy & totally honest.
Don't see it if You blush easily; or if honesty disturbs or hilarious but sometimes graphic concepts and language offend ears, sensibilities and orifices.
