Hysteria Party

Jimmyjane and The Peggy Siegal Company hosted an exclusive premiere of Hysteria last night at New York City's Landmark Sunshine Cinema. Film stars and authors alike joined the event, including star Hugh Dancy, who plays Dr. Mortimer Granville, the inventor of the electric vibrator.

The screening and after party at Hotel Chantelle inspired open discussion from attendees, including 86-year-old legend Angela Lansbury, who, like all guests, received a Jimmyjane vibrator in her gift bag. According to the New York Post, Lansbury claims it was her first. As Huffington Post put it, "…guests [were] abuzz with anticipation: What was in those white bags? Celebrants went home with vibrators, which in lieu of Hugh himself, would just have to do." Co-star Maggie Gyllenhaal missed the screening to stay home with her newborn, but sent a message via director Tanya Wexler, which, according to Variety, read – "I hope you enjoy the movie… I have a feeling you may want to come again and again."
