Vagina Monologues - NEW DATES and TIMES

Vagina Monologues - NEW DATES and TIMES

Winner of the Obie Award. "If Ms. Ensler is the messiah heralding the second wave of feminism, and a lot of people think she is, it is partly because she's a brilliant comedian…The audience…was overwhelmingly adoring." -NY Times. "The most exhilarating part is, no kidding, her extremely virtuosic way with a series of orgasmic moans…Ensler, a writer-performer with a good-natured but seriously evangelical mission about this body part, must be enjoying her success in getting the word out on such a legendarily unmentionable, mythologized and misunderstood fact of life…" -NY Newsday. "Ensler breaks taboos by talking, talking and talking some more-stripping fear and shame from what she celebrates here. It makes for quite a party. Funny, outrageous, emotionally affecting, and occasionally angry…THE VAGINA MONOLGOUES confront words to demystify and disarm them. In so doing, Ensler disarms the audience too." -Associated Press.

THE STORY: An Obie Award-winning whirlwind tour of a forbidden zone, THE VAGINA MONOLOGUES introduces a wildly divergent gathering of female voices, including a six-year-old girl, a septuagenarian New Yorker, a vagina workshop participant, a woman who witnesses the birth of her granddaughter, a Bosnian survivor of rape, and a feminist happy to have found a man who "liked to look at it."
