Event Details

A.C.T. will open National Women's History Month with Eve Ensler’s “The Vagina Monologues,” first billed as a “whirlwind tour of a forbidden zone.” The 1996 premiere of the stories of self-discovery, violation and passion was an immediate success. Empowering women, the play became a movement translated into 48 languages and performed in more than 140 countries, sometimes as fund-raisers for V-Day, a global campaign Ensler founded to combat violence against women.  Ms. Ensler’s creation is still important today, particularly in light of the current “Me Too” and “Time’s Up” movements.  Mature audiences only.

 

Reviews:
·       "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.
