Dr. Levy invites audience members to the couch and helps them solve a personal problem in 13 minutes or less. Social barriers fall away as the Doctor and her "assistant" Jim diagnose and treat volunteer "patients" while encouraging audience call outs with helpful insights and suggestions. "Pretend it's like a sporting event." advises Dr. Levy. This unique approach makes for comical, and remarkably speedy, success in personal problem solving. The experience is, in large part to Dr. Levy's combination of wit and razor sharp insight, undoubtedly the most innovative synthesis of entertainment and human relationships ever brought to the stage. The audience bonds with the liberating spirit of having a stranger confess their problems in a productive, evocative environment, allowing the audience, Dr Levy, and patient, to laugh together.
