Despite many years of theater going, In the Next Room , I found to be shocking. I think the matter of men masturbating women on stage was perhaps more than I was ready for. However the subject was treated without any lewdness or nudity. In many...continued

I know this play was nominated for some awards, but I'm sorry. The primary source of humor in the play is making fun of the lack of knowledge of the characters. This is, to me, a cheap shot, since it is easy to do, and people will be doing it...continued

Unlike most other people reviewing this play, I really didn't enjoy it. The idea of what was happening in the next room in Victorian times is an interesting concept to explore in a theatrical setting, but something just didn't work for me. The...continued

The preview audience was laughing out loud throughout. Not for the easily embarrassed.

I thought this was a fantastic play. The writing is quite layered and poses a lot of provocaative questions about intimacy, marriage, gender roles, medicine, race, and privilege. Ruhl's playwriting is simply masterful. While the cast across the...continued

In the Next Room amuses and titillates without ever seeming cheap. It took me about a scene to get into the rhythm of the play, but from then on I was hooked into the funny and yet profound lives of these repressed Victorians.

This play was absolutely fabulous! It was chock full of hilarious double entendres. Do NOT attend if you are easily offended! The couple next to use looked angry and bitter over the blatant sexual nature of the play. I am not sure what they...continued
