Review: The Human Symphony

BY David Levy

This post was created by an active member of the Flavorpill community who reviews arts and culture events. The New York Neo-Futurists’ new show, The Human Symphony, is a play with a lot of layers. On its surface, it’s an exploration of dating in the internet era, created and directed by Dylan Marron, best known outside of the theatrical world for his roles on the podcast Welcome to Nightvale and the webseries Whatever This Is.
