Alicia Dattner's "The Oy of Sex" is a hilarious and intensely honest performance. Dattner's one person show explores her life growing into sexuality and emerging as a something much more powerful. ... full review

I just loved this show. Alicia is an incredibly generous and thoughtful performer - not just about her demanding and personal subject matter, but generous with and thoughtful of her live audience.

(Her handling of some late comers was masterful and kind. Always a wonderful thing to see a performer take care of audience even when they're fifteen minutes late.) The show is about love and romance an... full review
