UPDATE (January 2008): The blogger event took place, and boy it was fun! Thanks to all the bloggers who came to the show, and double thanks to those who blogged about it! You can find my notes on the show in the post "I’ll have what she’s having."
UPDATE: Please tell other bloggers and post this on your site — spread the word about this neat event.
As you may know, City Theatre invites me often to attend and review their productions. They asked me to help promote an event coming up this January:
Pittsburgh Bloggers Invited to "The Vagina Monologues"
City Theatre, on Pittsburgh’s South Side, is staging a new production of the mega-hit "The Vagina Monologues," and they’re extending a special invitation to the bloggers of Pittsburgh — female and otherwise.
"The Vagina Monologues," Eve Ensler’s revolutionary and entertaining theatre event, will star Erica Bradshaw, Holli Hamilton and Laurie Klatscher. These three awesome actresses will list pet names for private parts, tell stories about discovering "downthere," and discuss the wonders of birth. Staged in City Theatre’s 111-seat Hamburg Studio, the shocking truths and raucous humor will be an up-close and personal experience for all.
Local bloggers are invited to bring a guest and attend the show for free on Saturday, Jan. 12 at 5:30 pm. You’ll also enjoy a complimentary glass of wine in the theatre lobby bar beginning at 4:30 pm. If you choose to write about "The Vagina Monologues" on your blog afterwards, the theatre will also provide a special discount code that you can offer your readers.
IMPORTANT: To reserve your seats, please send an email to Margie Romero (mromero at citytheatrecompany.org) by Wednesday, January 2, 2008. Include your name, the name and URL of your blog, and the number of seats you wish to reserve (1 or 2).
Space is limited, so sign up today!
I’ll be there, most definitely. If you’re going, I’d love to meet up with other bloggers afterwards as well — we’ll grab a coffee or a drink somewhere on the South Side and discuss the show. Drop me a note if you plan to go.
