    1. This is the third of Payne's plays I've now read, and by far my favorite. Weaving together three separate stories (that eventually intersect), it is initially a bit difficult to keep straight what is going on, but it eventually all makes sense, and is beautifully constructed and modulated. Would love to see it on stage sometime, and see how well it performs.


    2. I was fortunate enough to see this play performed live at the Manhattan Theater Club. Watching a four-person cast handle over 20 separate roles with rapid-fire scene and character changes was an absolute treat, and once the powerhouse of a play was over I knew I wanted to find a copy of the script and reread it to see how everything fit together. The play goes by so quickly that it’s a bit tricky to follow all the separate storylines and interconnect them with only one viewing. Incognito is a [...]


    3. I liked this one much more than Constellations. Again, though, the ending is a little bit of a "humph". And again I feel like the opportunity to really explore some interesting stuff about the brain and memory was missed. It has some, but I wanted more. Still, the way the stories weave into and through one another is fascinating. I bet this would be great to see on the stage.



    4. Nick Payne is a wonderful writer. I've read 5 of his plays. This one is about the man who stole Einstein's brain. It is interesting. And very theatrical. I just don't like it as much as I do some of his other playscially If there is I haven't found it yet.
