Critics’ Reviews

“In the Next Room is a true novelty: a sex comedy designed not for sniggering teenage boys—or grown men who wish they were still sniggering teenage boys—but for adults with open hearts and minds."

Review by Charles Isherwood from The New York Times

"A compelling yarn with engaging characters who evolve. When Cerveris and Benanti enter the winter garden and disrobe for the play’s final Edenic sequence, [playwright Ruhl] achieves an unforced aura of hopeful wonder."

Review by David Cote from Time Out New York

"[Playwright] Sarah Ruhl's grasp of her characters is strong, and their troubles are affectingly depicted.A painful and riotous symphony of sexual searching."

Review by David Sheward from Backstage

"[Director] Les Waters has an agreeably light touch that allows the comedy to milk every ounce of naughtiness without tipping over into puerility. The fine cast keeps it engrossing."

Review by David Rooney from Variety

"The play has been given a pitch-perfect Broadway staging that beautifully balances its humor and pathos. Under the sensitive direction of Les Waters, the ensemble delivers sterling performances."

Review by Frank Scheck from The Hollywood Reporter
