Lincoln Center Theater's "In the Next Room or the vibrator play

Lincoln Center Theater is celebrating its 25th anniversary this season. The celebration includes Lincoln Center Theater's show now in previews at the Lyceum Theater called In The Next Room, or the vibrator play. Although I have plans to see the show personally within the next week or so (I see them all), it sounds like In The Next Room, or the vibrator play should be a very funny, touching, provocative and entertaining story. It's about a young doctor and his wife. Dr. Givings is played by Michael Cerveris and his wife Catherine by Laura Benanti. I last saw Ms. Benanti in Gypsy and she was amazing.

Sarah Ruhl is the writer of this play. Ms. Ruhl must have wondered why back in the 1880's that medical doctors used "vibrator therapies" on some of their female patients to treat episodes of hysteria. It appears that hysteria was a real diagnosis. One that was often given to women in that era. It seems that it was a common way to treat this medical condition was with electrical stimulating machines or what is commonly thought of now- vibrators.

In the show, apparently Dr. Givings is one of those people who is completely obsessed with all the latest technology. With this in mind, the good doctor is always seeking to find out how this technology can help his female patients. Although he doesn't quite understand exactly "how the vibrators help", his patients always come back for more treatment. Catherine, his wife, only gets to hear sounds that come from the doctor's treatment room. Catherine wants to be closer to her husband but not necessarily by electric means. I guess you may want to get some tickets to find out exactly what happens.

In The Next Room, or the vibrator play is directed by Les Waters with set design by Annie Smart. David Zinn, Russell Champa, Brad Poor and Jonathan Bell are responsible for costume design, lighting design, sound design and original music.
