In The Next Room

Monday, April 08, 2013

Morning SparkBuddies,

The play that I’m in opens in 12 days! Yeah, time has really flown. Rehearsals have picked up and slowly but surely things are coming to gether. Here’s a little bit of info about the show for those that are curious.

In The Next Room or The Vibrator Play:

Sabrina Daldry and Catherine Givings are sexually frustrated with their husbands, who creep quietly into their beds at night and only use the missionary position, which they endure but do not enjoy. Both are excited to have their first orgasms with the machine. Mrs. Daldry is content to continue having clinical treatments with the machine and suffer lifeless, boring sex with her own husband. "I am afraid there is very little sympathy between us." Catherine Givings wants more. First Mrs. Givings learns from a visiting artist that orgasms detached from love ultimately are unfulfilling and empty, simply surface, without soul, and similar to sex with prostitutes. Then a lower-class wet nurse, Elizabeth (MISSB8604'S character), reveals to Catherine that she may be able to enjoy the same sensations from the machine with her husband, with whom she is frustrated because of his clinical detachment, but still ultimately loves. Catherine first inspires jealousy and passion in her husband, then convinces Dr. Givings - who had earlier observed that "what men do not perceive because their intellect prevents them from seeing would fill a book" - to make naked snow angels with her and discovers the woman on top sex position, allowing her at last sexual satisfaction while the curtain lowers.

Cool huh?

I love the play. It’s absolutely wonderful and has so much heart to it. I think that audiences will truly enjoy it. My cast is wonderful, talented and dedicated which makes the 1 hour drive totally worth it. Because of the distance, I don’t expect a lot of my friends to come, but this is for me anyway. If anyone comes, awesome, but if they don’t that’s okay to. This is for me.
I’m proud to say that I got exercise in all weekend, including my new obsession, Zumba. My latest challenge has been the Stairclimber. SparkBuddies, this thing kicks my butt and I LOVE it. I can only do 15 minutes, but dang it, I’m determined. I’ve got Zumba tonight and I’m determined to stand in the front of the class tonight because I’m sick of not being able to see the instructor.

My eating has been terrible, absolutely ridiculous. I know half of it is monthly hormones, but seriously it’s crazy. I’ve got to get a handle of this.

Overall, I’m doing alright and trying my best to stay positive. Exercise will be really scarce this week because of rehearsals (we’ve been getting out at 11pm or 11:30pm, it’s crazy) but I’ll do the best I can.

Have a wonderful week!

Miss B

    That sounds like a really interesting play! Very cool! It's always so interesting to read about your work and your life as an actress; it's so different from what I'm familiar with and I love reading your blogs!

    emoticon Good evening, dearest MISSB! Oh, would I LOVE to see this play!! What a clever, clever plot...and I wish somehow we had video of our heroine, Elizabeth, who gets things humming again (ha! Couldn't resist that choice of words :) for dear Catherine! I'll bet you are absolutely magical in the role!! It sounds demanding - very much so! - but ultimately so enchanting! Let us know how things are going for you, because I know we're going to hear a lot more about you and "In the Next Room: The Vibrator Play"! Soooo cool!!

    We'll be waiting in the wings to hear all the rest from the Best of the Best...Miss B!!

    I feel like I have heard about this play. I sure wish I could see it.

    Now that you have lost 100 lbs, and are catching the exercise bug, you are really going to tone and tighten and get an unbelievable shape. I love Zumba because it tightens you but still maintains your womanly curves.

    The play sounds great! You'll have to get to Zumba early to get to the front if your class is anything like the classes I attend sometimes. Have fun!
