Kaleidoscope Creative Partners has announced the off-Broadway premiere of L.O.V.E.R., a solo comedy written and performed by Lois Robbins. It is set to officially debut on September 8, with a limited run through November 2.

The show's premise is described as follows: "Everyone remembers their first kiss…and second…and maybe their fifth? This bold new comedy reveals the truths about life, love, and…sex. L.O.V.E.R. portrays one woman's confessions of what goes on behind closed doors — and between the sheets. L.O.V.E.R. is the new play for anyone who's found love or is still searching."

L.O.V.E.R. will be directed by Karen Carpenter, joined by Jo Winiarski (scenic design), Jeanette Oi-Suk Yew (lighting design), and Jane Shaw (sound design). The run will take space at Pershing Square Signature Center's Alice Griffin Theatre.
