I think I have vagina burnout. I never thought I'd type, speak, or even think those words and having done so my darling wife will probably stare at me like a stranger. But it's true. After a decade's worth of annual productions of The Vagina Monologues and two productions this month alone there's just not much left to say. I mean even Playhouse on the Square retired Peter Pan eventually (although I've heard it may be coming back like Jason Voorhees with a meathook). On the other hand there is this...

APENAS COMENCEMOS CON LA VAGINA de la PALABRA. VAGINA. SUENA COMO UNA INFECCIÓN EN EL MEJOR DE LOS CASOS. . QUIZÁ UN INSTRUMENTO MÉDICO " La PRISA, ENFERMERA, ME TRAE el VAGINA." VAGINA. VAGINA. ÉL DOESN' T IMPORTA CUÁNTAS VECES USTED DICE LA PALABRA, NUNCA SUENA COMO UNA PALABRA QUE USTED QUIERE DECIR.

Okay, I admit it. It's been a long time since college, I never made the best grades in Spanish, and babelfish.com has probably turned the above quote from Eve Ensler's play into complete nonsense. But if you've always wanted to feel empowered or entertained (or both) by frank discussions of la panocha, (or la cueva, or la cosita or los papayas) then tonight's your lucky night.

The Evergreen Theatre, Midtown's newest playhouse for independendent companies, opens to the public this weekend with a production of The Vagina Monologues and tonight the entire show will be performed in Spanish. Muy bueno, si? Si.

And as always, it's for a good cause. VDay Memphis is a non-profit organization that raises funds and awareness to help victims of domestic violence. This year's proceeds benefit the Exchange Club Family Center and the YWCA of Memphis.

The Vagina Monologues: February 26- 27 at the Evergreen Theater (formerly Circuit Playhouse). Tickets $20. Doors open 7pm both nights. Shows start 8pm
