Rating: NNNNN

We caught up Saturday with the The Vagina Monologues’ all-Canadian cast: Sandi Ross, Krista Sutton and guest Jann Arden. Working with emotion and humour — they’re far better than the largely American group we saw in December — the three made the piece more than a rote exercise in feminism. At one point, following Sutton’s piece that incorporates various orgasmic moans, Arden’s mike stand fell apart. “That’s what a little unbridled sexual passion will do,” she ad libbed, then dropped her script while trying to fix the mike. Ross stepped in without much success, muttering, “Never send an actor to do a technician’s job.” While a techie attacked the problem, Arden, who doesn’t sing in the show, started to warble sweetly, prompting an enthusiastic audience member to shout, “It really is you!”So your number was pulled at the Fringe lottery.
