PANZA MONOLOGUES in North Texas _ Dallas this week!

[fyi - "panza" is the informal Spanish word for "stomach."]

Guest artists VIRGINIA GRISE & IRMA MAYORGA from San Antonio will be in DALLAS (this weekend) and FORT WORTH (next weekend) with their original theatrical performance:


"Conceived from conversations and chisme with girlfriends and compiled from interviews and replies gathered from Latinas of all ages, places, and spaces, this one-woman tour de force yields un regalo y homanje to the PANZA as told through the words of women speaking with heart-stopping frankness.  The stories create a quilt of poignancy, humor, and revelation.  Performed in monologue format and riffing on Eve Ensler's play "The Vagina Monologues", The Panza Monologues boldly places these stories of the panza front and center as symbols that reveal the lurking truths about women's thoughts, lives, loves, abuses, and lived conditions."

FRIDAY AND SATURDAY, MARCH 18th and 19th - 8:15pm
2600 LIVE OAK STREET - just east of downtown Dallas

Tickets: $15 general admission, $10 students and seniors, group discounts available. For ticket & other information, please contact 214-946-9499
