Fresh from her portrayal of God in Kevin Smith's "Dogma," singer/songwriter Alanis Morissette will take her act to the off-Broadway stage when she appears in "The Vagina Monologues," from March 21–April 2, according to a spokesperson for the singer. The two-week run at New York's Westside Theater also will feature actresses Andrea Martin and Shirley Knight. Morissette plans to return to the studio to record the follow-up to her multiplatinum Supposed Former Infatuation Junkie (1998) after the acting stint. A number of high-profile actresses, including Winona Ryder, Whoopi Goldberg, Rosie Perez and Ricki Lake, have portrayed the work's characters, based on a 1998 book by Eve Ensler. A portion of the proceeds from ticket sales will be donated to the anti-domestic violence V-Day Fund. A pay-per-view special from Morissette's 1999 co-headlining tour with singer Tori Amos will be broadcast Feb. 19. The new album is tentatively slated for early 2001.
