take your daughters
...or your moms. Or your boyfriends...
Valentine's Day is coming up, and you know what that means... well, yes, mindless consumerism, again. But more importantly, there will be local benefit performances all over the world of Eve Ensler's amazing play, the Vagina Monologues. Here in Raleigh, a fabulous group of community performers will be staging their third annual production of the Vagina Monologues on Saturday, February 9th, with all proceeds going to the Women's Inmate Program of the Wake Literacy Council.
You don't want to miss this! The matinee show at the Rialto is a great place to take your mom, your daughter, your sister, your brother, your dad... to see a show that is hilarious, moving, and will help you start all those conversations that you don't know how to have with the people you're closest to. Sex? Yes. Love? Yes. Abuse? Yes, unfortunately. Hope? Joy? Fun? Yes, yes, yes!
I hear there are still some tickets left for the raucous late-night performance at the Pour House as well... but they're going fast!
Get your tickets at raleigh-vm.org. And make sure you tell some friends about it, too!
By the way, if you don't live in North Carolina, there are plenty of places to see this incredible show. Check out vday.org to find out where!
PS... thanks to Liz Winfrey for the great photos from last year's show.
