Celebrating Women with "The Vagina Monologues": Also, Circa '21's "The Wizard of Oz" PDF Print E-mail

Not only is Eve Ensler’s The Vagina Monologues sexy, witty, tragic, and downright hilarious, it’s also quite an educational experience. For example, I learned the clitoris contains more than 8,000 nerve endings – which is twice as many as the penis. As one actor said, “Why have a handgun when you can have a semi-automatic?” Talk about woman power.

 
A Different Type of Theatre: "Love Letters" at the Playcrafters Barn Theatre PDF Print E-mail

Love Letters isn’t a typical stage production by the standards of contemporary acting. That’s because it’s not necessary for performers to act or even memorize A.R. Gurney’s script; they just read it. The experience is a bit like listening to a book-on-tape, with the benefit of being able to watch the readers. Some audience members for Playcrafters Barn Theatre’s current production – running weekends through January 26 – won’t enjoy the lack of stage movement, but those who know what to expect beforehand will appreciate the well-written script.

“And dream we will, for we are in so odd a world that just to live is to dream.” – Segismundo, Life Is a Dream

 

In his aptly titled Life Is a Dream, playwright Pedro Calderon de la Barca suggests that even if life is no more real that our sleeping stories, the Golden Rule still applies. Actions and relationships still have pertinence, and the status of an individual is defined by the opinions of those around him. Calderon’s poetic 1636 play continues this weekend as part of the University of Iowa’s 2003 Mainstage season.

Before Pablo Picasso and Albert Einstein became icons of the 20th Century, they were dreamers. Steve Martin thinks so anyway. In his 1996 play Picasso at the Lapin Agile, Martin explores the unusual (fictional) meeting of young artist Picasso and science genius Einstein before they created history-changing works and ideas – during a time they had only the visions in their heads to rely on. Richmond Hill Players is performing the play in Geneseo through October 13.
