Folks – I may officially be stir crazy. I just signed up to help out/possibly participate in The Firm’s production of The Vagina Monologues in March. I have been in the production before, but in a relatively calm piece. I did My Short Skirt in my sophomore year of college and focused on sexual harassment, discrimination, and the campus environment (also as communications chick for the university’s Student Women’s Initiative). I wore a corset and hot pink fishnets and blushed whenever anyone said a “dirty word” – a little bit of a contradiction in such a play, eh?
But yes, this time around? I’m older, wiser, much more “vulgar” (not that I believe such things are vulgar anymore… Just another change since my student days I suppose).
Needless to say? I can’t wait. Queer theater with tripping fairies last summer to empowering, strong, sexy, honest, terrifying, groundbreaking theater this spring. So, you’re all going to come watch on March 5th, right?
