If anthropomorphized lady parts women monologuing on behalf of their vaginas is all you know about womens theater, then you dont know much. Take the new production from the Womens Theatre Project called Going to See the Elephant. The phrase going to see the elephant is a figure of speech for the hopeful. It means that something fantastic waits just over the next hill if you can just get there. And in the play, to get away from wolf attacks and possible Indian attacks, four women who live on the frontier will discuss how they plan to get to this elephant. The mission of the Womens Theatre Project is to portray stories that are written by women that are about women but for everyone. Showtimes are 8 p.m. Thursday, Friday, and Saturday and 2 p.m. Sunday right until May 16 at Sixth Star Studios (505 NW First Ave., Fort Lauderdale). Tickets cost $25, $15 for students.
Thursdays-Saturdays, 8 p.m.; Sundays, 2 p.m. Starts: April 22. Continues through May 16, 2010
