Sisterhood is funny


For the second week of its two-week run at Penn, ÒThe Vagina MonologuesÓ will be delivered by local notables Marty Moss-Coane (top) and Gail Shister.

For its first stage production of the season, Penn Presents is giving a Broadway hit a Philly accent.

Eve EnslerÕs ÒThe Vagina MonologuesÓ has taken the world by storm with its personal stories of womenÕs lives. In New York, a succession of celebrities and notables have taken a star turn at the mike telling tales that are at once funny, provocative and unifying. And so it will be on the Zellerbach Theatre stage, with actress Carol Kane performing the first week of the showÕs run. Then the Philadelphians take over, with WHYY-FM ÒRadio TimesÓ host Marty Moss-Coane on stage for the second week, and Philadelphia Inquirer TV gossip columnist Gail Shister doing the honors on the showÕs final night.


ÒTHE VAGINA MONOLOGUESÓ: Oct. 3-8 and Oct. 10-15 in Zellerbach Theatre, Annenberg Center, 3680 Walnut St.; see day-by-day listings for performance times. Tickets for evening performances $33, $28 and $24; tickets for matinee shows $29, $25 and $21; discounts for students, seniors and Penn affiliates available. Tickets/info: visit or call 215-898-3900.
