The avant-garde theater group Talking Band — The Times called it “one of the boldest and most venerable politically minded companies in NY” – debuts its musical play, “Fusiform Gyrus – A Septet for Two Scientists and Five Horns.” Exploring the intellectual bro-mance between two scientists leap-frogging from one epiphany to another, the work is inspired by the real-life friendship between Daniel Kahneman (who won a Nobel in economics) and Amos Tversky; the two Israeli psychologists’ theory on cognitive biases became the basis for modern-day behavioral economics, and was later inadvertently showcased in author Michael Lewis’ “Moneyball.” (Lewis went on to write about the psychologists’ collaboration in “The Undoing Project: A Friendship That Changed Our Minds,” on which this play is loosely based).
