SEX RATED G is a personal trip across Hollywood's unsettling sexual landscape. Lisa Verlo explores the subject while recounting her sexual resume with such candor that in the end SEX will no longer be a four-letter word.

"Lisa is hilarious, honest, vulnerable, and relatable. I left this show feeling a deep connection with her and the stories she told. I laughed at her candor, I cried at the familiarity I felt from what she said. The songs are full of wit. The show is shocking and hysterical. I highly recommend. Love her honesty, the format of the show, interspersed with highly effective dialogues with her and various men - the men's voices were recorded with visuals to match, the songs, and her performances of them. Loved it."

"Lisa Verlo is a clever witty writer and brave artist who dares to bare her soul (and a little more) in her honest depiction of Hollywood Life as a young actress. Perfectly timed with the #metoo movement"

"Lisa tells her Hollywood story of sex, innuendo and unhinged promises with wholesome candor, whimsy and irony. What she sought and what occurred, while pursuing a career (before Me Too) is carefully articulated and forthright, sparing the rancor for a brainier approach. Her voice is wonderfully expressive with flashes of humor and emotion. She's ON! And her work has the ring of Truth. Go and see Lisa, she's only going to get Better!"

"An incredibly funny and moving show. Lisa's a joy to watch and her story gives a glimpse into the life of an actress before women dared to declare #metoo. The songs are so catchy too! You'll be humming them for days after!"

"Lisa is a vulnerable, charming, and refreshing artist. She generously shares her experience as an aspiring actress before boundaries in the entertainment industry were a thing - the subject of her story is both relevant and told from an honest and human perspective. The songs she wrote herself and performs in her show are both funny and powerful. This is a brave and relatable piece!"

"Loved, loved, loved this show! Lisa Verlo does an amazing job relating her sexual awakenings from childhood to the more real exploitation in Hollywood. Her portrayal of her youthful and young adult naïveté is both vulnerable and, at times, amusing. The use of digital media, props, and music add to the entire experience. A must see!!"

"I loved Sex Rated G for so many reasons. It has a message for any woman with a pulse who has been in the "world." While there's specific Hollywood back-drop, I brought two people who had nothing to do with theater or Hollywood in general and they related to Ms. Verlo's candid, unflinching look at how her looks were keys to the kingdom and also, the source of suffering. In this time of #metoo, #timesup, what about the women who through their own agency, did "sleep" with someone for her own reasons? Why is it that we think that only men have a sexual drive? Women do too and their way into an adult sexual life can be complicated out in the "market." And yes, Ms. Verlo makes the "market" very clear and truly despicable in the classic sense of a dominant class dangling dicks and carrots to "lead" women on... Females are stereotypically manipulative, right? Men are too and they don't get called out on it. I would urge you to bring husbands, sons, and brothers to this as well as wives, daughters and sisters. This is a family problem and Hollywood arguably is the source of a lot of our gender confusion and pain. Go see this sweet show. It's heartfelt, full of talent and it's a pleasure to see Verlo's acting chops, which are considerable. Hollywood's loss is our gain. My only argument is that there are plenty of women 50 and over who are sexy and once we shift ageism, there may even be anecdotes of women over 50 who are propositioned for a quid pro quo star turn. Kidding!"

"Lisa Verlo hits the “spot” with this raw, funny, vulnerable and entertaining account of her own sexual experiences on Hollywood's casting couches. Coming of age meets reality on a very timely topic! The production includes a creative use of digital media, adding a unique and interesting element to the show."

"Got to catch a preview of this great one-woman show - funny, revelatory, rollicking ride through the worst of Hollywood before #metoo. Interesting use of tech to recreate key casting couch conversations makes the show feel more of an ensemble piece. Don't miss it!"
