The director of the play demanded that the title be changed back, saying that they only had the rights to the play if its contents - including the title - were not censored.
As a result, two days after the hoohaa brouhaha began, the vagina was returned to its rightful place on the billboard.
The Vagina Monologues, Eve Ensler's award-winning international hit play, is an attempt to celebrate the vagina as an object of empowerment, rather than of shame. There's some way to go with that one, clearly.
and an updated version over at DailyKos relays this e-mail from the theater:
I think we are being misunderstood. "Hoohaa" was meant to be tongue in cheek. Having a 9 year old daughter and coming from a medical background I was furious that a woman would actually complain about having to explain to her niece what a vagina was after the child read it herself. My daughter knows the anatomically correct term but calls uses hoohaa. Yes, we know what free speech is and we are glad to be putting Vagina back up today. I am female and I support VAGINA!!!
