Review writes: At its best, “The Immortalization ­Commission” is an ­engrossing double-act play about scientific ­hubris. Act One is very nearly a comedy about a close-knit group of British occultists; Act Two is a tragedy about Bolshevik “God builders” ­intent on remodeling life on Earth. The author’s coda, in which he offers a ­meditation on the way aging and death contribute to the meaning in our lives, is not completely convincing, but, as always, he provokes hard thinking.
