The Vagina Monologues are just that — solo contemplations on a woman's most intimate body part. Ensler interviewed 200 diverse women, including the elderly; African-Americans; and Bosnian rape victims, asking them a myriad of questions from "What do you call your vagina?" to "If your vagina got dressed, what would it wear?" The play has been celebrated for its frank approach to its subject. The show is serious, comic, political, revealing and liberating, observers have said. The show's three-year run at the Westside Theatre Downstairs, has featured rotating trio casts of celebrity actresses The Vagina Monolgoues was originally produced in an Obie Award winning run in 1996 by HOME for Contemporary Theatre and Art at HERE.
