Two neurotic people from different walks of life — one a workaholic professional, the other a minimally employed aspiring magician who still lives with his parents — randomly meet and fall in love. That's the basic plot of Neurosis , now running at the DR2 Theatre — so far, a so-standard romantic comedy. So are their respective neuroses, anthropomorphized in the forms of Neurosis Brennan Caldwell and Neurosalina Morgan Weed , both of whom trail after Frank and Abby like perverse Jiminy Crickets appealing to their self-sabotaging impulses. From this Inside Out -like premise, composer Ben Green, lyricist Greg Edwards, and book writer Allan Rice have fashioned a musical comedy that only half-fulfills the promise of its inventive concept. Rice, according to a program note, earned a degree in clinical psychology at Tufts University, and at its best, real psychological insights emerge from Neurosis 's whimsy.
