  2. This weekend’s performances were amazing! I wanted to share an e-mail I got at around 7:00 a.m. Saturday morning
    “The show was outstanding. You caught the essence of what it was supposed to be all about. I brought friends who have never experienced V. Monologues and they were amazed. One even remarked about how everying in it had been presented {to her} at one time or another, but this time she ‘got it.’ Especially femicide. Putting it out there like this does give it more meaning than hearing about it on the news or from some other media source. This was my 3rd time and it still sounds fresh, bold and wildly entertaining. Bravo!
    Looking forward to next year, and I’ll bring more friends.

  3. I thought the show was amazing! It was so inspiring! It made me laugh and cry all at the same time! The women who played the roles did an awesome job. I will definitely be seeing this performance again. I took my mother and my grandmother with me to see the show and it was a great bonding moment for all of us. We talked about our favorite parts of the show the whole way home. My favorite part definitely had to be the discussion on the tampons! I also loved the belly dancer!
