The stars of Off-Broadway's Freud's Last Session, Mark H. Dold and Martin Rayner, presided over the closing bell at NASDAQ MarketSite Nov. 11 The ceremony was broadcast live on the seven-story-tall NASDAQ Tower looming over Times Square at Broadway & 43rd Street.


The show "centers on legendary psychoanalyst Dr. Sigmund Freud (Martin Rayner), who invites the young, rising academic star C.S. Lewis (Mark H. Dold) to his home in London. Lewis, expecting to be called on the carpet for satirizing Freud in a recent book, soon realizes Freud has a much more significant agenda. On the day England enters World War II, Freud and Lewis clash on the existence of God, the joy of love, the purpose of sex, and the meaning of life – just a few weeks before Freud's own death. Not just a powerful debate, this is a profound and deeply touching play about two men who boldly addressed the greatest questions of all time."
