Courtesy of stock.xchng. Westminster College is performing "Vagina Monologues" to raise awareness of domestic violence.

Back in the day when the ‘V’ word gave everyone the vapors, “The Vagina Monologues” was edgy theater.

Now, with a slew of so-called girls-gone-raunchy comedies following in the wake of “Bridesmaids”—Sundance had no less than three entrants that depended heavily on vagina-centric gags—it would appear we are moving beyond even getting exercised over the ‘C’ word.

Nevertheless, for all its quaintness, “The Vagina Monologues” remains powerful. Students at Westminster College are joining with communities across the nation to raise awareness and money to fight sexual violence by hosting performances of “The Vagina Monologues” February 7, 8 and 9 at 7:30 p.m. in Vieve Gore Concert Hall, 1250 E. 1700 South, Salt Lake City.

Tickets, $10, can be purchased at the Westminster Box Office the day of the performance or over the phone at 801-832-2457.
