Much More than Women's Rights
This is the best play on Broadway. As much as I enjoyed, say, God of Carnage, In the Next Room actually is smart and bold and biting and funny. Furthermore, I think its way too dismissive to label this play a womens piece, no matter how respectful. The brilliance of the piece is, were laughing at how archaic and clumsy the practices were in those days until it becomes shockingly clear that although our ideas about vibrators and female sexuality may be more evolved, our ability to understand intimacy as it relates to sex is just as backwards. And the last ten minutes of the play are the best Ive seen in years. This play is amazing on so many different levels.
