Untitled Theater Company No. 61 presents this new play examining the nexus between neuroscience, marketing, art, and love. More…
Set at a neuromarketing firm, "The Neurology of the Soul" follows a neuroscientist who is trying to scientifically define love, his wife, an artist who is using her brain scans as the basis of video self-portraits, a marketer who is trying to apply the science of love to advertising, and a gallery owner who deals with art as a commodity.
“While introducing many intellectually interesting ideas...The lack of stakes...in just about everything made it hard...to follow the emotional journey of the characters...The acting was universally ungrounded...As an intellectual exploration, ‘Neurology of the Soul’ gives the audience a lot to think about and presents really interesting ideas, however, it falls short in incorporating those ideas into an intellectual narrative...The play falls short of reaching your soul.” Full Review
See it if You like thought-provoking plays raising questions about science and humanity in story form that will stick with you. Great actors & script.
Don't see it if You don’t like small-scale plays with only four actors. Also, be aware there is a bit of coarse sexual language.
See it if You’re interested in modern times, the bad side of marketing, marital ups and downs, the seedy side of art marketing and a good script.
Don't see it if You think it will be more about science than human vulnerabilities.
See it if You want a smart but simple love story about how neuroscience can be used by us and against ourselves. Enjoy tow dynamic performances
Don't see it if You mind a main arc that is predictable and at the end a bit sappy. Don’t get academic humor or enjoy that.
See it if you’d like to see a piece that puts some of our civilization’s big ticket items on trial: love, science, need, commerce, fidelity, art…
Don't see it if you don’t think of the theater as a place you want to think.
See it if A neurological researcher uses his wife as his subject for experiments to image the brain in response to romantic and sexual stimuli.
Don't see it if ... if you don't enjoy plays that need more work. The concept is very interesting, but actors are stiff or miscast.
See it if ...you’re interested the dangers of using science to enhance marketing techniques. Also a story that combines Pygmalion & Frankenstein.
Don't see it if You expect a well cast play. The part of Marc was well cast & well developed. The characters, Stephen and Amy were not well written or cast.
See it if want to be reminded about everything that you ever read about neuroscience and marketing; you are fans of 4 good actors
Don't see it if do not want to be bored for 1 hour and 40min looking on predictable situations on stage and listening to the banalities. Stay home, please
See it if You want to see some stellar acting and a thought provoking show. The design elements are wonderful and the acting is absolutely stunning.
Don't see it if You don't like somewhat stilted, "talky" pieces - there is a lot of sitting around talking at each other, & repeating things multiple times
See it if You want an interesting night at the theater with some stunning performances.
Don't see it if You don't like heady, intellectual pieces. It seems at moments like the writer was more interested in writing a thesis than a play...
See it if You want to see some phenomenal actors. The characters of Mark and Amy especially were really engaging (kudos to the actors.)
Don't see it if You don't like slow moving, talky pieces.
See it if You'd like to see an intellectual look on love through the lens of science with some great actors.
Don't see it if You want an emotionally moving, dramaturgically sound evening.
See it if You want to see some stellar acting. Ashley Griffin is absolutely incredible as are the rest of the cast. Scenic design is very cool.
Don't see it if You don't want a slow, ponderous evening. There is so much sitting around talking and repeating scientific concepts. Give us some heart!
See it if You want to see some awesome actors working their butts off. Yvonne Roen is awesome, & Ashley Griffin is stunning (& freaking sexy as hell)
Don't see it if You want an emotionally moving night at the theater. This is the author showing off his science knowledge.
See it if You want to learn about science and see some awesome, under used talent. If they're this good now I wish I could see them w/ good material
Don't see it if You don't want to listen to a lecture disguised as a play.
