“The Vagina Monologues” In L.A., A Real Hit
Posted by Tommy Garrett on Mar 8, 2011 - 2:06:40 AM
February, Eve’s Lime Productions and The Limelight Project brought Los Angeles
audiences a very special production of Eve Ensler’s “The Vagina Monologues” at
the Barnsdall Gallery Theatre. Under the direction of Ally Zonsius and produced
by Sheila J. Hardy, the production moved fluidly from monologue to monologue
taking the audience with them through a very entertaining and moving
in hysterics, squirmed with discomfort and even cringed to mental images
offered by Alison Arngrim (“Little House on the Prairie”) with “Because He
Liked To Look At It,” Gabby Sanalitro’s rendition of “My Angry Vagina,” Nikki
Brown’s performance of “The Woman Who Loved to Make Vaginas Happy” and Kate
Linder’s (“The Young and The Restless”) sublime interpretation of “I Was There
In The Room.” A highlight of the evening’s production was Tippi Hedren’s
amazing recitation of “Myriam” written by Eve Ensler and dedicated to activist
and author, Myriam Merlet. Merlet was chief of staff for the Ministry for
Gender and the Rights of Women of Haiti. She was the founder of Enfofamn, which
collects and promotes women’s stories, while fighting for women’s rights
through the media.
V-Day is a
global activist movement that generates broader attention for the fight to stop
violence against women and girls, including rape, battery, incest, female

events/performances took place around the world. To date, the V-Day movement
has raised over $75 million and reached over 300 million people. The Barnsdall
Gallery Theatre production beneficiaries include Peace Over Violence and Women
& Girls of Haiti.
