About the Show

In this new drama about a comatose man, a tour of the collective unconscious is coupled with the latest neuroscience in an exploration of how the brain heals itself, and ultimately creates the mind.

Slow, Intelligent, Dizzying, Entertaining, Clever

See it if you like lots of talk and ever changing projections and lighting - here it was too much for me to grasp everything and the story faded.

Don't see it if you are not into listening to a detailed story told by multiple characters all acted by one person. Braininess competes with entertainment.

Slow, Relevant, Dizzying, Great acting, Ambitious

See it if you like 1-man shows or you're interested in the ethics and decision making behind cutting the cord on human life.

Don't see it if you prefer clear stories with a straight-forward arc. Read more

Ambitious, Disappointing, Slow, Great staging

See it if You want to see a show about a man in a coma.You like colorful projections used as a backdrop.

Don't see it if You are looking for a fast moving show. This is very slow moving.

Uninvolving, Ambitious, Intelligent

See it if you love video projection though it is sometimes indulgent. If you are interested in medicine you might especially like it.

Don't see it if you want emotional connection. You don't like one man shows when they play characters extraneous to the story or not always delineated.

50
Overrated, Cliched, Disappointing

See it if You have an extra 90 minutes. Not worthwhile.

Don't see it if You want something worthwhile. LA reviews were great. The show we saw was mediocre.
