Local radio personality Josefa Salinas has been a comforting voice for over 20 years in the L.A. area and now she is using her voice to help make a difference for other women as well as entertain. Making her theatrical debut as a guest star in the much-talked about play that’s pushing the boundaries of conversation, Josefa is getting open an honest in “Conversations ‘Bout The Girls.”
Josefa joined Pat Prescott to give a little insight to this provocative play and why it’s a must-see for all women.
The play written by Sonia Jackson focuses on the personal stories and experiences of eight different women and their breasts, affectionately referred to as “The Girls.” The play touches on topics ranging from entertaining and thought-provoking monologues about women’s health, domestic abuse, breastfeeding, implant options and female sexuality.
“When you think about the media and the various ways things are sold, breasts are used to sell everything from tires to burgers…because men are obsessed with them,” joked Josefa. “[The play] is about conversations about ‘the girls’ everything from really amazing conversations to really heartbreaking conversations women have to have about the girls.”
The play isn’t just about entertainment, by purchasing a ticket to “Conversations ‘Bout the Girls,” you’ll also be supporting a worthy cause. Five dollars from every ticket sold benefits the Los Angeles County Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure.
“By being a part of this play, I’m helping other women and that means a lot to me,” said Josefa.
Catch “Conversations ‘Bout the Girls” on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays, May 3 – 19, at the Greenway Court Theatre (544 N. Fairfax Ave.) in Los Angeles. For tickets and showtimes, visit www.greenwayartsalliance.org.
