Lois Robbins L.O.V.E.R. Redeems Itself After All The Boyfriends and Sex

Lois Robbins L.O.V.E.R. Redeems Itself After All The Boyfriends and Sex

L.O.V.E.R., written and performed by Lois Robbins becomes engaging as the show moves at a fast clip, thanks to director Karen Carpenter.

Playing at Pershing Square Signature Center, in a strange way L.O.V.E.R. is like a therapy session, where Ms. Robbins starts out at age three demonstrating how she gave herself orgasms by straddling her family’s washing machine.

From there it is one bad boyfriend after another, always based on how good he looks and of course, the sex. Ms. Robbins seems a little self absorbed and rather superficial.

She feels as she is being manipulated like a puppet by her father’s strings, yet he calls her princess and supports her in every way.

After one disaster filled marriage, she finally settles for a man who is right for her, has kids, a career and then gets breast cancer. Finally, L.O.V.E.R. grows a soul.

There are ups and downs with her kids, but she basically seems to have sailed on a rather blissful course.

It was at the end when Ms. Robbins talks about women and how we need to support one another, that I truly got onboard with this play.

Karen Carpenter’s direction is inventive as she uses Jo Winiarski’s set and Jeanette Oi-Suk’s lighting beautifully.

L.O.V.E.R. will appeal to a vast amount of women. As for men……?

L.O.V.E.R.: Pershing Square Signature Center, 480 West 42nd St. until Nov. 2nd.
