Clarksville's Roxy Theatre Opens 11th Year of THE VAGINA MONOLOGUES Tonight
Eve Ensler's series of monologues about women and performed by women has played to packed houses across the country, and the Roxy Regional Theatre's production of The Vagina Monologues-beginning its 11th year tonight, January 11, at 8 p.m.-is no exception.
Leslie Greene and Adriane Wiley-Hatfield are joined by a different guest actor each week in readings of the monologues based on interviews Ensler conducted with 200 women about their views on sex, relationships, and violence against women. Week One will feature Tennessee artist Amber Wallace; Week Two will feature Allie Michael, administrative assistant of Academic Affairs at Austin Peay State University; Week Three will feature Jill Eichhorn, professor of Women's Studies at Austin Peay State University; and Week Four will feature Courtney Berlyak, partner at Sango Village Florist.
The Vagina Monologues is presented in theotherspace, the 50-seat black-box theatre located upstairs at the Roxy, and runs tonight, January 11 through February 2, playing Thursdays at 7 p.m. and Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m. Tickets are $15 and may be purchased online at www.roxyregionaltheatre.org, by phone at (931) 645-7699, or at the theatre during regular box office hours (9 a.m. to 2 p.m., Monday through Friday).
