Kate Linder (Esther, THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS) is appearing on stage this weekend in a production of The Vagina Monologues by Eve Ensler at the Barnsdall Gallery Theatre in Los Angeles.
Like other productions, this one stars three women: Linder, actress/author Alison Arngrim (LITTLE HOUSE ON THE PRAIRIE) and Diane Amos (aka "The Pine-Sol Lady.") However, unlike other productions, this one is not a stage reading where the women are seated. Linder and the other performers will be moving around in a fully staged production that includes additional cast members.
"I thought it was just a reading when I committed to it," Linder chuckles. "This is a totally different production. I've never seen anything like it."
Fortunately, the thespian is used to memorizing lines quickly thanks to her time in Genoa City. "This is going to make me a better actress. I try to push myself more and this will definitely do that!"
Show times are Friday, February 18 and Saturday, February 19 at 8 PM and Sunday, February 20 at 2 PM.
Proceeds benefit both a safe house for women in Haiti and local charity Peace Over Violence. For tickets, visit www.vdayla.org
