‘The Vagina Monologues’ @ U of L Playhouse Theatre

Feb. 14-16

U of L Playhouse Theatre
1911 S. Third St.
$8-$10; 7 p.m.

First performed entirely by the writer, Eve Ensler, in 1996, “The Vagina Monologues” sparked a revolution amidst the controversy of its subject matter. Today, it is the centerpiece for V-Day, a nonprofit organization and global movement to end violence against women. This year it’s part of U of L’s weeklong “One Billion Rising,” appropriately scheduled during the week of Valentine’s Day. Guest actresses and students will perform scenes such as “My Vagina Was a Village” and “Because He Liked to Look at It,” with the intent of encouraging female empowerment. So regardless of whether you have a vagina, U of L’s performance of “The Vagina Monologues” promises to be a celebration of women’s strength, told in the voices of hopeful women young and old. —Natalie French
