Lee Meriwether, Geri Jewell Among Atwater Village Vagina Monologue All-Stars

We have to hand it to LA Talk Radio personality Sheena Metal, moonlighting this weekend as the director and organizer of a series of celebrity performances of The Vagina Monologues at the Atwater Village Theatre. For this Ensemble Studio Theatre Los Angeles production, she’s stacked the deck with all sorts of recognizable TV, film and stage names.

The boldface participants are donating their time, with proceeds to be divided between charities PROTECT.org and play author Eve Ensler’s V-Day. “It’s exciting to work with so many great actresses,” Metal confirms. The three-night event kicked off on Valentine’s Day with tickets priced at $25 and the following casts confirmed for tonight and tomorrow night’s 8 p.m. performances:
