Vagina Monologues

People….if you have not watched this play….you really really should……it is super funny……kind of sad in certain parts…..overall quite insightful!

I am not really a play/theater person….I prefer movies any day…..if you don’t like it at least you can pass comments and yet not be rude since the performers cant hear you…but this one was wonderful!

Although I had heard good reviews of this particular play…..I did not think it would be worth its salt…the name just did not sound like it would be right……Monologues…come on….I did want to listen some women giving a monologue….and that too about vagina’s….come on…..how could anyone give a monologue on Vagina’s! the name reminded me of a “ Friends” episode in which Chandler is stuck watching a play alone and some women goes on in a monologue…..Why do you do this to me etc etc….and he was so suffered through it…if you have watched  “Friends” you would know what I am talking about!

Now back to Vagina Monologues…..It was 5 women….  Mahabanoo Mody-Kotwal, Dolly Thakore , Sonali Sachdev, Jayati Bhatia, Avantika Akerkar….sitting on stools with their script in their hand…..(they kept throwing sheets of paper down as the act got over)…and they were absolutely rocking…!! Amazing voice modulations……expressions….body language…..all sitting right there on the stool! It was a very powerful performance….

I am inspired to go for a acting workshop!

Wiki gives an intersing plot summary ..  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Vagina_Monologues

But believe me reading it tells you nothing about the play….you must go and watch it!
