After a smash run earlier this year in May, I Lost You There returns to the Cherry Lane Theatre Studio Space featuring Award-winning solo performer Bahr ("Curb Your Enthusiasm," "Svetlana," DAI) as she brings to life six characters whose lives intertwine in surprising and hilarious ways, exploring how death is viewed and experienced through different occupations, personal attitudes and cultural norms. Through her distinguished brand of witty pathos, Bahr brings to life touching and hilarious characters whose lives interconnect in surprising ways, shining a light on the one aspect of our existence that we all have in common.
