What I liked

I loved the idea of a stake out waiting for you ex to come out of the bar to confront him. Straight out of something we would do in high-school, and the musical numbers were EVERYTHING! And not to be a downer but I loved when they spoke about their past relationships and were super vulnerable, it was a great juxtaposition from all the comedy.

What I didn't like

I didn’t think anything could be improved, the intimate space of a small theater really helped with the performance.

My overall impression

I loved this show, for so many reasons one of them being their honesty about relationships and their ability to laugh at themselves. ATOH gives you a peek into what it’s like dating in the modern age from a female perspective, and you either laughed and thought “Thank God I have my significant other” or “Oh my God I can totally relate” either way its a great story from start to finish. It never lags, they keep a furious comedic pace through out the whole show until they breakdown with their moments of truth in dating, WHICH IS BRUTAL! Not brutal in a bad way, but in that I just wanted to give characters hugs and eat ice cream with them. Tara and Sasha brought a real raw emotion with them in this show, and it was undeniably sobering but also a very funny perspective at how we interact with one another in the pursuit of love.
