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’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. 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.
See it if You want to see an interesting premise executed with great actors and design elements.
Don't see it if You want an emotionally moving premise or dialogue. This isn't just a "heady" or "talky" piece, it's an indulgent lecture by the writer
See it if You want to see some good actors and designers working with interesting material and want an intellectual evening.
Don't see it if You don't like being "talked at," you don't like stilted direction and staging.
