From exorcisms to orgasms, the daughter of a New Age Holocaust survivor is compelled to “cha-cha” away the wounds of her ancestors. Through the celebratory delight of her loose underwear she finds freedom. And yes… it's funny.

"What I liked Her performance and writing is so on point. I’m looking forward to seeing Dagmar in anything else she decides to star in next… Dirty Underwear next? What I didn't like Nothing. The show is superb as is. No revisions to be made in my book. My overall impression The show is well written and performed by Dagmar. Her characters are so recognizable, full of innuendos that set them all apart that it was meant for her to perform them as she knows them so well. Beautiful job… and nice, dirty underwear to go around!"

"Dagmar is a true artist and performer. She goes through so many emotions in this 1 hour show that you as an audience member feel like you have loved her life through her. Very well done."

"A beautifully crafted story that shares one woman’s journey from her homeland of Czechoslovakia to the United States, and how it affected her and her relationship with her parents (especially her mother). Dagmar’s story is a wonderful metaphor of how generational differences define who we are, no matter how much we try to run from them. I especially love the message that, in the end, we have to accept our parents for who they are. Go see this show with your mom, if you can."

"Anecdotes are the key to the success of any great story teller. Ms Stansova, working with director De Liso, finds  nuance and romance; loss and resolution.. redemption, even.. all in her autobiographical presentation. With only one performance remaining, the house will probably be sold out soon, so.. for insights and delightful stories, don't miss this one."

"Every aspect of Dagmar's Stansova's show was amazing. Her storytelling was vivid, emotionally involving and brave, both as a writer and a performer. Dagmar puts her entire heart and solo into opening a window into her life and I came away from the show not only wanting to see it again, but also loving Dagmar herself. Highly recommend!"

"Dagmar Stanaova's "Loose Underwear" left tear-streaked marks of her genius as I settled into its emotional impact of raw honesty, smart humor and the personal reckoning with her past, that is all of ours, through the lens of her mother's experience as a Holocaust survivor. In short, I was awakened and moved. Told with grace, wit and the kind of connection that can only come from the truth of who she is sparked a universal truth of knowing: We all come from a lineage of ghosts, cellular memories, and the creative power to change the course of our personal and collective histories."

"Dagmar Stansova knocked it out of the park. I laughed and danced in my seat. I wept. Dagmar is masterful. Her stage presence is magnetic, accessible, and richly textured. Her story, a combo of how one finds oneself/who one is/how one becomes who one is + who the child is/who the parent is/what they are together + the Holocaust + what/who one loves in one’s life + who came before us + who we will become + James Brown—just to trying to abstract it—shone light into corners of darkness. Her insights are profound and uplifting. The manner in which she shares them is riveting. Her spirit and resolve are contagious. Her telling of her journey is moving and powerful. I can’t stop thinking about her show."

"What a treat! There wasn’t a moment when my attention wandered. Dagmar is a riveting performer. She carries a fascinating life-long narrative with consulate acting skills, delightful body movement and multiple language skills— all with amazing ease, emotional depth and plentiful humor. The show is well paced, with fine direction and excellent technical assists. You won’t regret heading out to see this one!"
