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.
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.

Don't see it if you do not want to watch the ills of market techniques and relationship troubles by researchers with loved ones.
See it if for the insightful blend of science & art that underpins the plot. The theater has artwork & post show interviews to support the theme.
Don't see it if you have triggering issues with brain explorations and MRIs.
See it if Science and art can meld beautifully. Unfortunately they do not do so in this play. I never felt engaged by any of the actors. Do you agree
Don't see it if You need well developed characters rather than cardboard cut outs to enjoy a play. You are easily bored by slow moving stories on stage.
See it if Neuroscientist scans wife’s brain to measure emotions (love). Results are used by his boss for product marketing and by his wife to make art

See it if you like plays that are thought provoking, unique in theme, realistic dialog, good characterizations and fine acting.
Don't see it if you dislike plays that deal with scientific mind research and the effects on human lives and serious rather then light/comic presentations.
See it if If you a great story of mind vs. heart vs marketing told by a super cast.
Don't see it if You like more traditional theater.
See it if You like science , art ,and an exploration of relationship dynamics It didn’t go deep enough but was entertaining
Don't see it if You want to be seriously challenged. This is more stereotypical but fun enough
See it if you're interested in new technology and the business of promoting and selling works of art .
Don't see it if you want to hear all the lines spoken by the female lead. She spoke too low, too fast and often behind a curtain.
See it if You are interested in marketing, art, or neuroscience--you are more intellectual than emotional
Don't see it if you want believable characters enacting a believable situation.
See it if you're interested in the neural bases of emotion, consciousness, suggestibility, and motivation. Einhorn juggles these impressively.
Don't see it if you prefer to engage with complex believable characters over ideas. This is Stoppard lite, but without compelling human behavior
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 a smart but simple love story about how neuroscience can be used by us and against ourselves. Enjoy two 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 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 are interested in a play that deals with scientific research on love which the results might change the view of neuroscience
Don't see it if You do not like small productions, plays with a lot of medical and science referrals, infedility, love
See it if You enjoy a play that examines the nexus between neuroscience, marketing , art and love
Don't see it if You have no imagination
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 You just like science (though trying to explain love thru science is really kinda foolish IMHO)
Don't see it if you're expecting witty dialogue and thought-provoking themes
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.
