OKC Civic Center Music Hall
CitySpace Theatre
Presented by Reduxion Theatre
June 3-25, 2016

This production is rated "R" for intense adult themes of sexuality, and nudity. 

In The Next Room, or the vibrator play is a comedy about marriage, intimacy, and electricity. Set in the 1880s at the dawn of the age of electricity and based on the bizarre historical fact that doctors used vibrators to treat 'hysterical' women (and some men), the play centers on a doctor and his wife and how his new therapy affects their entire household. 

In a seemingly perfect, well-to-do Victorian home, proper gentlemen and scientist Dr. Givings has innocently invented an extraordinary new device for treating "hysteria" in women (and occasionally men): the vibrator. Adjacent to the doctor's laboratory, his young and energetic wife tries to tend to their newborn daughter-and wonders exactly what is going on in the next room. When a new "hysterical" patient and her husband bring a wet nurse into their own complicated relationship into the doctor's home, Dr. and Mrs. Givings must examine the nature of their own marriage, and what it truly means to love someone.

Friday, August 19, 2016 - 8pm

For 40 years Penn & teller have defied labels-and at times physics and good taste -- by redefining the genre of magic and inventing their own very distinct niche in comedy. 

With sold out runs on Broadway, world tours, Emmy-winning TV specials, a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and hundreds of outrageous appearances on everything from Fallon to Friends, The Simpsons to Colbert, Modern Family to Top Chef, comedy's most enduring team show no signs of slowing down.

With an amazing eight wins, including 2015, as "Las Vegas Magicians of the Year," their 15-year run at The Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino makes them the longest running and one of the most-beloved headline acts in Las Vegas history, outselling every other resident magician on The Strip. 

Their acclaimed Showtime series, Penn & Teller: BS! was nominated for 13 Emmys and is the longest-running series in the history of the network. The show tackled the fakes and frauds behind such topics as alien abduction, psychics and bottled water. 

Currently they host the hit series Penn & Teller: Fool Us! for the CW Network, on which up-and-comers and magic veterans try to fool Penn & Teller for a chance to star in the duo's hit Las Vegas stage show. 

Along the way, they've written New York Times Best-Sellers, hosted their own Emmy nominated variety show for FX, starred in their own specials for ABC, NBC and Comedy Central and produced the critically lauded feature film documentary The Aristocrats. Their acclaimed documentary, Tim's Vermeers, follows Texas-based inventor Tim Jenison on his quest to discover the methods used by Dutch Master Painter Johannes Vermeer. The Sony Pictures Classics film was nominated for a BAFTA and shortlisted for the 2014 Oscars.

Penn & Teller triumphantly returned to Broadway this past summer in a smash six-week long engagement that USA Today called, "Deliciously unsettling." It was the highest-grossing non-musical on Broadway for its entire run.
