ROGUE REVIEW: A Cynic Tells Love Stories

RogueMuse20101.jpg

Katherine Glover is engaging, witty, poignant and funny in her “A Cynic Tells Love Stories” one-woman show.

This 60-minute show examines the stages of love from being a hopeless romantic (yearning for day someone tells you that “you would be worth dying for”) to being a love hater (F— LOVE!) and not really knowing how you will end up. Katherine commands the stage, effortlessly moving from scene to scene, from funny moments to sad, poignant points of discovery.

Some of the funniest moments come when she talks about falling for “straight girls” and being named “The Slut” in college. But my favorite scene was “The Wife,” which combined all the elements of good storytelling — romance, tension, conflict, humor and self-discovery. The performance felt honest and made me root for her. Will she embrace her hopeless romantic side or cling to the cynic? I don’t know the answer, but I bet she comes up with a lot more stories along the way.

SHOW INFO: 2:30 p.m. today, 8:30 p.m. Thursday, 10 p.m. Friday and 7 p.m. Saturday at Million Too, 1153 N. Fulton. Admission: $7.
