Los Monólogos de la Vagina, the Spanish language production of Eve Ensler’s The Vagina Monologues played its final performance at the Westside Theatre on June 15. The production began performances on May 6 and opened on May 18, playing 15 previews and 33 regular performances at its original off-Broadway home.
Based on interviews with a diverse group of women—from a Long Island antique dealer to a Bosnian refugee—The Vagina Monologues brazenly explores the humor, power, pain, wisdom, outrage, mystery and excitement hidden in vaginas. The original production played over 1300 performances from 1999 to 2003 at the Westside Theatre. Directed by Jaime Matarredonna, Los Monólogos de la Vagina is modeled after the current Mexico City production, now in its 14th year.
The preview cast was Miriam Colón, Kate del Castillo and Angélica Vale. The opening cast was Vale, along with Kate del Castillo and Angélica María. The most recent cast was Daphne Rubin-Vega, Maria Cellario and Flor De Liz Perez.
