In the Next Room, or The Vibrator Play
Friday, September 10 at 8pm
Southern Repertory Theatre
Canal Place, 3rd Floor
Tickets: $25.00 at 504 671 7410

In the Next Room, or, The Vibrator Play is a provocative, funny, touching and marvelously entertaining story about a young doctor and his wife. Dr. Givings is obsessed with the marvels of technology and what they can do for his patients. His wife, Catherine, is only a bystander in her husband’s world — listening at the door from the next room as he treats his female patients. Dr. Givings is not sure exactly how the vibrators help the women he treats – but they do keep coming back. The only woman whose problem is not helped by the doctor is his own wife, who longs to connect with him — but not electrically. [via Lincoln Center Theatre]

Pull out the potholders and the Lemon Fresh Pledge: Running With Scissors is taking you where dustbunnies fear to tread, into the spic-and-span heart of suburban America! We’re traveling to the community of Stepford, Louisiana — a place where the loafers are light, the cosmos are crisp, and wives are always on the watch for waxy yellow buildup. Join us as we pull back the curtain on THE REALLY DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES OF STEPFORD PARISH!

Our story begins with Joanna Morgenstern, a feisty wife and fledgling artist, who moves from her plush home in New Orleans to the quiet, comfortable Northshore village of Stepford. But almost as soon as she pulls into her new cul-de-sac, things go from quaint to quirky. Joanna’s husband — acclaimed florist Walter Morgenstern — joins the local Men’s Association and spends most nights at the clubhouse with his new pals. And as pretty as her new home may be, Joanna doesn’t know what to make of her new ladyfriends, whose deeply domestic habits don’t jibe with Joanna’s good-time gal ways.

After a bumpy start, Joanna eventually encounters a couple of kindred spirits: tomboy Bobby Marco and superstar TV bombshell Tina Louise. At last, Joanna thinks she’s going to make it after all! But then, like a ’73 Pinto, her hopes go up in flames. Bobby and Tina become just like all the other Stepford wives, and Joanna feels sure she’s next! What’s turning all her friends into homebound hausfraus? Who’s going to those disco parties at the Men’s Association? Why does the water taste like axle grease? And most importantly: will Joanna escape from Stepford to the warm comfort of Bush?

THE REALLY DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES OF STEPFORD PARISH stars Kyle Daigrepont, Bob Edes Jr., Brian Peterson, Dorian Rush, and Michael Sullivan. Props are by Liz Zibilich, with sound/video by Richard Read. The original script was created by the company, inspired by Ira Levin’s classic camp novel, The Stepford Wives, a couple of movies by the same name, and a shameful love of reality shows.

In this side splitting musical extravaganza by the creators of Howard Crabtree’s Whoop Dee Doo!, new heights of hilarity are achieved in outrageous skits. During its long off Broadway run it has been honored with two Drama Desk awards including Best Musical Revue and two Outer Critics Circle awards including Best Off Broadway Musical.

“Crabtree’s creations send When Pigs Fly soaring to silly heights…. Waldrop’s lyrics are skillful and funny.”– N.Y. Daily News.

“A good old fashioned revue given a gay new fashioned twist and the kind of fantasicated costumes that could have your eyes out on stalks…. Gallagher’s music is glitter bright and tuneful.”– N.Y. Post.

“Exceptionally cheerful … [with] enough hilarity, wit and outre humor to evoke that era when bright, irreverent revues were commonplace on Broadway…. This show works.”– N.Y. Times.
