For those of you who live in North Carolina, I know I will be seeing you tomorrow at the Vagina Monologues show in Raleigh. If you haven't bought your tickets yet, the late show at Kings is SOLD OUT because this show is not to be missed, but there are still seats for the matinee at the Rialto, so go get yours while they last!
So everyone has been to see the Vagina Monologues, right? (If not, it's an incredibly powerful play by Eve Ensler that uses personal monologues from all kinds of women to de-dirtify the vagina's image and get into the love, anger, joy, abuse, courage, shame and transformation that we live as women). The play is usually performed on or around Valentine's Day, so there are performances happening all over the country right now (find one near you!). A group of Raleigh women are performing it tomorrow as a benefit for Planned Parenthood - this is their second year performing the show and they are fabulous.
Apparently some Floridians will be performing the show this weekend too, but the publicity has been a little harder for them. Yesterday's most-watched video on CNN was a news story about the theater in Florida where the show is being performed. The theater had to take the word "vagina" off their marquee because of local complaints. Their solution? The "Hooha Monologues."
How very mature.
They had heard from people who were offended after driving by and had to explain to their little daughters what a vagina is. Personally, I'd consider that a public service.
