One thing I've been trying to do before I exit NY is to catch some plays. This one was recommended to me by a friend who knows my love of psychology, science, and angst.

Incognito by Nick Payne (playwright of Constellations) threads three major story lines together about how the human brain and its mysteries both limit us but also connect us in ways we cannot ever predict. The play consists of four actors who play roughly 20 roles between them with each story told in fragments, layered on top of one another, so you skip from story to story with actors changing out of character in what feels like 10 minute chunks. The results are a mixed bag but it doesn't detract from some of the powerful ideas Payne has about what makes us who we are and how we are with others.

The production I saw starred Charlie Cox (yes, Daredevil!), Heather Lind, Morgan Spector, and Geneva Carr.
