Awesomely Bad Dates in I Made Out with Him Anyway

Evie Peck and Kirstin Eggers have dated a lot of guys, and we're so glad they did because their new two-woman (and one musician) show I Made Out with Him Anyway at the Lost Studio theater is a rollicking ride of tales from dates-gone-awry. They describe the one-hour show as a "multimedia cabaret-style extravaganza"--there's a little music, a little storytelling and a lot of laughs. The audience is at times doubled over with laughter because they, too, can relate to the misadventures in dating: "I once went out with a guy who ordered cashew chicken without the cashews."
Peck recounts her adventures with a rabbi--a Birkenstock-wearing book author and the former official rabbi of JDate--who wasn't above a booty call. Eggers countered that story with a tale of "dating" a 19-year-old who starred in one of those MTV reality dating shows. What made the bit priceless was that Eggers found a brief video clip so we saw exactly who she was talking about. Can you spell "winner" with a capital "W"?
Directed by Nick Hoffa, the segments move along at a good pace. The music by Jon Lee, and the songs sung by Peck and Eggers are both catchy and hysterical. They'll have you singing along by the end.
Although Eggers is no longer single, Peck still is. We hope she's single for a little while longer so we get hear more misadventures in dating from this pair.
