Los Monólogos de la Vagina Coming To off-Broadway's Westside Theatre!
The Vagina Monologues, will return in a new form when the first New York City revival opens for a Spanish language engagement at its original off-Broadway home. Los Monólogos de la Vagina will begin performances at the Westside Theatre (407 West 43rd Street) on 6 May. Opening night is scheduled for 18 May. Mexican director Jaime Matarredona helms the production. It is produced by Morris Gilbert and Federico González Compeán. This will mark the first time that a mainstream off-Broadway theatre has hosted a commercial Spanish language play for an ongoing run. The production will be modeled after the current Mexico City production. Los Monólogos de la Vagina will be performed by a revolving cast and a portion of each ticket sold will go directly to benefit V-Day.
Miriam Colón, Kate del Castillo and Angélica Vale will appear in the production from 6 May through 11 May, with del Castillo, Vale and her mother, Angélica María, performing from 14 May through 1 June.
Tickets are on sale now and available through www.telecharge.com

V-Day Applauds Senators Gillibrand and McCaskill For New Effort Fighting Sexual Assaults On College Campuses
"Our 'Making the Grade' report - released jointly by SAFER and V-Day in October - highlighted the lack of accessibility, oversight and enforcement of existing college sexual assault policies," SAFER (Students Active For Ending Rape) and V-Day, the global activist movement to end violence against women and girls. "College student activists reported on their schools existing policies as well as a need to address the existing culture of rape.
V-Day is pleased that Senators Gillibrand and McCaskill utilized the report as a tool for advancing legislation on this critical issue. We applaud Senators Gillibrand and McCaskill for their attention, for advancing the important work led by student survivors and advocate groups, and for their commitment to creating violence-free campuses nationwide."
