About the show

2h 0m | Ends Oct 07 | DR2 Theatre (Gramercy)

A comedy with a psychiatric twist, this new musical is a story about finding happiness, falling in love, and dealing with that little voice in your head along the way.

"In the summer doldrums, in what movie buffs call the silly season, it is a pleasure to come across a witty, clever new musical with a relatable theme. 'Neurosis,' with a smart book including an inventive twist by Rice, witty lyrics by Edwards, bouncy, catchy music by Green and snappy direction by Sandberg, is a vastly entertaining show about two losers in love, Abby (Jennifer Blood), a successful but workaholic marketing executive who has a penchant for inappropriate guys."

Theater Life

"Despite being essentially a conventional rom-com, with stereotypical characters, it survives…without a nervous breakdown. 'Neurosis' may not be as funny as it should be, but it's animated, polished, and more consistently diverting than many similar Off-Broadway novelties…Rice's book handles its subject with sensitivity and wit; Edwards's lyrics support the story with clever rhymes and insights; and Green's music…has a generic but consistently entertaining show biz aura that gets the job done."

Interludes

“The writing is never less than accessibly entertaining. Green’s music is tuneful and jaunty, while Edwards’ lyrics are bright and astute without being condescending...As for Rice’s good natured book, it’s tightly structured if a tad limited in scope. Even if ‘Neurosis’ doesn’t quite delve into the more complicated aspects and dark underbelly of the neurotic condition, I didn’t really mind...’Neurosis’ knows exactly what it wants to be, and it executes wonderfully on its promise."

Front Mezz Junkies

“A light-hearted but unsurprisingly sitcom-like book, catchy music, and enjoyable but obvious lyrics that highlight every stereotype you can imagine...The setups and songs are playful, humorous, and almost witty enough to draw us in, with music director Aaron doing a great job enlarging the sound as he conducts and plays keyboards alongside three other talented musicians, but the lasting effect of ‘Neurosis’ is superficial, requiring a bit more treatment to become something more sustainable.” Full Review

Off Off Online

"Full of small pleasures. It’s the kind of show that doesn’t 'kill' but supplies grins and smiles generously...It’s a pleasant surprise, too, to find that lyricist Greg Edwards can write clean, intelligent rhymes, and Ben Green’s music is tuneful...Despite the use of tried-and-true plot devices, Rice’s book has many original moments beyond the idea of tag-along neuroses...Although the pleasures of 'Neurosis' are modest, they are solid, and elevated by the extraordinary talents of a hard-worki...

Theatermania

“A musical comedy that only half-fulfills the promise of its inventive concept...Purely as musical theater, though, ‘Neurosis’ does have its charms...Edwards's lyrics and Rice's book are filled with quick-witted jokes and wordplay, and Green's music abounds in buoyant energy...This conceptually intriguing but disappointingly skin-deep show proves too committed to its crowd-pleasing ways to be both diverting and profound.” Full Review

Relevant, Entertaining, Fluffy, Light, breezy, fun!, But in a good way

See it if To be honest, I planned to make notes for my vacation during it -- never thought it would be so much fun! Just what you need in late summer.

Don't see it if You need real drama in this blistering heat, or simply don't like 50s-esque light-hearted fun. It was a bit zany, and the cast was loveable.

Also If you saw Popesical a few years back at the Fringe, you'll enjoy seei... Read more Read less

See it if An 85% & a 90%. A fun time. My favorite is Lacretta although the 2 young couples (live and imagined) were close . Much laughter by audience

Don't see it if Limited set.. More songs for Lacretta.. Theater should open"loos" in basement right at intermission. A/C much too cool (take a sweater.)
