On Feb. 13, Jasmine Guy, Rue McClanahan and Jan van Ark will replace Robin Givens, Lea Thompson and JoBeth Williams in Eve Ensler's The Vagina Monologues, which is in a long run at the Canon Theatre in Beverly Hills. The show offers a new trio of actresses every three weeks. Guy, McClanahan and van Ark will perform through March 4.Based on interviews with a diverse group of women, the play boldly explores the humor, power, pain, wisdom, outrage, mystery and excitement hidden in the human body. Ensler has given voice to a chorus of lusty, outrageous, highly original stories. A generous portion of every full price ticket, plus a percentage of the production's profits will be donated to the V-Day Fund, which supports groups working to end violence against women.
Canon Theatre is located at 205 N. Canon Drive. For tickets and information call (310) 859-2830 or visit www.vmlosangeles.com
