theatre we love – the vagina monologues

February 2016

Looking for something special to do on a Thursday night? This month’s edition of Sine Qua Non‘s “Theatre We Love” has the solution for you! February is known for Valentine’s Day demonstrations of love, but a little known fact is that February is also becoming increasingly notorious for a very different V-Day! The Vagina Monologues campaign, One Billion Rising has claimed this time of year as their official “V-Month,” and as a result Chicago’s theatre community has been completely abuzz with productions of the famed monologues! Sine Qua Non‘s own Taylor Barton had the pleasure of directing Columbia College Chicago‘s rendition, and the production goes up on February 11th!


The Vagina Monologues are best known for their sensational presentation of female sexuality onstage, but they also represent a huge movement of self acceptance and love. The worldwide mission of the famed episodic play is to end violence against women and girls, and a quintessential part of that lies in finding and accepting what makes a woman feel beautiful! The show, written in 1996 by Eve Ensler, seeks to transform the way society views the female experience, and one of the most important aspects of this is the way we define what it means to be appealing, sensual, and worthwhile. At Sine Qua Non Salon, we couldn’t be more in favor of  women (and men!) embracing what makes them feel attractive, regardless of societal pressures. The concept of reclaiming one’s inherent beauty and strength is something we could all stand to gain, and it’s wonderful to see a movement so unapologetically fighting for that! What’s more, The Vagina Monologues serve as a real-world form of activism: 100% of the proceeds from every production performed go to local charities for women and girls. sine-qua-non-salon-blog-vagina-monologues-cast

The Columbia College Chicago production of The Vagina Monologues goes up tonight at 7:00 pm! The gorgeous cast will be performing at 623 South Wabash Ave in the Quincy Wong Center for Artistic Expression’s HAUS space. All proceeds for this event will be donated to the Chicago Women’s Health Center! Tickets can be purchased online, or at the door: General Admission is $10, Columbia faculty and staff is $8 with a valid ID, and Columbia College Chicago student tickets are free of charge, with a suggested donation of $5. Don’t miss this outstanding performance, or the chance to support beautiful women embracing what makes them feel sexy!
