Eve Ensler's "The Vagina Monologues" gives voice to a chorus of
poignant, brave, highly original and thoroughly human stories. Based on
interviews with a diverse group of women -- from a Long Island antique
dealer to a Bosnian refugee -- the play explores the humor, pain,
wisdom, mystery and excitement of women's bodies.
This Obie Award-winning play has been called "a bona fide phenomenon" by
the New York Times and "a work of art and a piece of cultural history"
