  1. 1. 100 tweets from my @tangencity stream by way of a “two-spurs up” recommendation to catch In the Next Room or the vibrator play currently playing at the the St. James Theater, London, till January 4, 2014
  2. 2. 94 Because you'll be schooled into the ways of theater, and recognize other valuable deployments with a new cast http://t.co/uBBf7TX8mM 93: because what others say about it will resonate wit u http://t.co/7EQUZb2ma7 Dec 06, 2013 92: how often do U step out @ night & get a unique, analogue, unmediated experience? ITNR is methylene blue - it'll stain your empathy cortex, revealing new connections to you 90: just because I say so; why don't you just act on it for once? take a chance on me
  3. 3. 84: "I have the most wonderful effect on shy people": @OwenOakeshott perfect in role: warm, large-breakfastpromoting, avuncular scoundrel
  4. 4. 60 4 the tangents e.g.: director Boswell ran theater in Bath, where @lucyroslyn will soon B: http://t.co/MEW6XJuALt 59: You'll henceforth be led by the nose by your appetite for risking your evenings, in the mad hope of recapturing this 1 58: Because it gets everything right, everything: even the planks are perfect, and so much more so the human element. 57: It makes you feel privileged to breathe the same air as such talented people all there to entertain u 56: "But she was beautiful. Perhaps not classically, but never mind." Ruhl's In the Next Room (p. 68): last 6 words r throwaway gold
  5. 5. 39: Ruhl, actors, director, costumer, composer pull us into evry character, even hungry baby @ suck 38: It's unpredictable yet wholly believable and positive; do try that at home 37: It builds to a decent climax at end of Act 1 and frankly you don't expect it to pop any higher than that 36: Sarah Ruhl being inspired by books & and breathing life into a multilayered theatrical extravaganza with a top-drawer production team 35. Never was a story of more woe, than of Annie and "her" on the piano 34: Those chimes - signalling scene changes - in surface mid-stream, but structurally right on the grain 33: The open, innocent, forthright liking Mrs Givings takes to technology in context of people, or her alone
  6. 6. 32
  7. 7. 31
  8. 8. 30 26
  9. 9. 6
  10. 10. 6
  11. 11. 6
  12. 12. the glance stage-left Mrs. Givings gives b4 sitting down w/ Sabrina - another deft stage direction from Ruhl, perfectly directed/acted
  13. 13. 5
  14. 14. Elizabeth's final speech, and that shocking three-letter word
