48 million Americans have tried online dating. #DateMe: An OKCupid Experiment is the outrageous, true story of one. Robyn Lynne Norris (the show’s creator and writer) is unlucky in love but determined to understand it better, so she logs on to the world’s most popular dating site: OKCupid. Creating 38 “undateable” profiles as an interactive scientific investigation into online dating, Robyn unwittingly sets in motion the social experiment of our generation. Part improv, part sketch comedy and entirely hilarious, Robyn makes one conclusive result: there’s no algorithm for love.
After a hit three-year run at the Up-Comedy Theatre in Chicago, #DateMe: An OkCupid Experiment moved to New York City and began performances at the Westside Theatre on June 20, 2019. Opening night was July 21, 2019.

Developed by Diane Alexander and directed by Lorin Latarro #DateMe features song lyrics by Robyn Lynne Norris, Frank Caeti, Amanda Blake Davis, Bob Ladewig, original music by Sam Davis.
