Whether you’re fresh off a breakup, head over heels for someone, or feel fine going solo, you’re bound to appreciate two comedians’ take on love and partnership. Lynn Bixenspan and Morgan Pielli were both dealing with failed relationships and family issues when they were inspired to produce the show in which they and other performers tell the good, the bad, and the ugly sides of dating before they are psychoanalyzed by a licensed therapist on stage. Although it’s worth a solid laugh, the show can also act as a cathartic experience because it makes us realize that we’ve all gone to tinder hell and back to find companionship. This week’s comedians feature Giulia Rozzi, Marc Gerber, and Jenny Rubin, so come out to live and love with a little relationshit.
