Last night I went to see Alicia Dattner’s one-woman show, The Oy of Sex at The Marsh Theater. If you aren’t familiar with Ms. Dattner’s work, she is a local comedienne with a talent for bringing her audience into her intimate space and guiding them on a breathtakingly hilarious ride through her personal history made public.
In The Oy of Sex, Alicia takes us into the realm of love and sex addiction and recovery — honestly discussing hilarious hookups, the perils of polyamory, and obligatory birthday cunnilingus. Her stories are so intensely personal they touch on the archetypal, causing the audience to erupt with laughter — but is the laughter at Alicia’s outrageous situations or at sparks of recognition of some equally awkward event in one’s own life?
If you want to laugh until your soul shakes, and feel like a better person for the experience, do yourself a favor and check out this incredible performance. It runs one more weekend at The Marsh.
