Kudos to the folks at The Historic State Theater Complex in Elizabethtown, KY for not backing down when one of their board members objected to putting the name of a play being performed at the theater on the marquee. The name of the play? Yes you guessed it, “The Vagina Monologues” and no it wasn’t the word Monologue that caused the problem.
Board member Jim Roberts resigned, telling the News-Enterprise of Elizabethtown that, “I objected to the V-word on he marquee. I consider it vulgar and in bad taste.” The title of Eve Ensler’s play remained on the marquee. Perhaps a production of the Spleen Dialogues would have been more to his taste. We hope that Mr. Roberts got a call from his mama reminding him of just how he got here.
