This year, the Vagina Monologues reaches its fifteenth year. The milestone is interesting in that the monologues detail the concerns of women who were interviewed over a decade and a half ago. The concerns of the women interviewed by playwright Eve Ensler continue to carry the kind of energy they did back then. There's a kind of universality about the material that should keep it exceedingly relevant for decades. The V-Day global no-profit that has raised over $75 million for women’s anti-violence groups finds itself a local stage this February as The Milwaukee Gay Arts Center this weekend as the MGAC presents performances of the monologues to benefit V-Day and Milwaukee’s Sojourner Family Peace Center. In its third year with the MGAC, the Milwaukee production is directed by Casey Harding.

February 11th and 12th at 7:30 pm and Sunday, February 13th at 2pm. Tickets are $15 for general admission/$10 for seniors and students. Call 414-383-3727 for reservations.
