Hey, it wasn’t me who thought up this title. I’m just rippin’ it. It’ll make for some very interesting Google ads too, I’ll bet.
Playing at the Aratani Japan American Theatre in Los Angeles, CA, on March 2nd at 8:00pm, an all Asian American vagina, er, I mean female cast will be presenting the Vagina Monologues.
Actress Tamlyn Tomita leads the first all Asian and Pacific Islander cast in Los Angeles of the Obie award winning play about women empowerment through the reclaiming of their bodies, in particular, their vaginas. The Vagina Monologues has been performed for V-Day events in over 90 countries around the world with the intent of raising awareness and funds to end the violence against women and children.
All proceeds from this performance shall go to the Center for the Pacific Asian Family (CPAF), which runs shelters and prevention programs in Los Angeles County for Asian and Pacific Islander survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault and to the 2007 V-Day spotlight of women in conflict zones throughout the world.
Don’t miss this very special performance! Join us to help stop violence against women in the Asian and Pacific Islander communities.
The line-up is going to include Amy Hill, Tsai Chin, Cher Calvin, Angela Oh, Sheetal Sheth, Janet Choi, Elizabeth Sung, Michelle Krusiec, D’Lo, Kathy Uyen, Angela Rockwood-Nguyen, and Clarissa Park.
Sounds like it’s going to be one awesome show! Props to organizer Eve Ensler and the Center for the Pacific Asian Family for putting this together!
