They say the biggest obstacle to success is getting over yourself. Maybe that's why struggling magician Frank and overworked marketing executive Abby find themselves stuck in life at the cusp of 30. Luckily, they each have their best friend to help them. Unluckily, those friends are their Neuroses. A modern musical comedy with a psychiatric twist, NEUROSIS is a story about finding happiness, falling in love, and dealing with that little voice in your head along the way.
Directed by Andy Sandberg (Straight, Application Pending), and choreographed by Shea Sullivan (Pageant), NEUROSIS began performances July 25, 2018 and officially opened on August 17.
NEUROSIS stars Jennifer Blood (Matilda) as “Abby,” two-time Tony Award nominee Joel Blum (Steel Pier; Show Boat) as “Kenny,” Brennan Caldwell (Baghdaddy) as “Neurosis,” Susan J. Jacks (Ionescopade) as “Geri,” Ian Michael Stuart (Escape to Margaritaville) as “Kurt/Larry/Others,” Morgan Weed (American Psycho) as “Neurosalina,” and Lortel Award nominee Kevin Zak (Clinton! The Musical) as “Frank.”
