NY Daily News "Jane Fonda Staging a Return to Acting"


by Mitchell Fink
Jane Fonda's decade-long hiatus from acting is about to end.
Fonda's name has been appearing in ads among a star-studded list of women, including Oprah Winfrey, Calista Flockhart, Winona Ryder, Glenn Close and Ali MacGraw, who will gather at Madison Square Garden on Feb. 10 for a rally demanding an end to violence against women.

The highlight of the event, dubbed "V-Day," will be a gala benefit performance of Eve Ensler's wildly successful Off-Broadway play "The Vagina Monologues."

Much has appeared in the press about Winfrey's participation, but what people don't know is that Fonda has both underwritten the MSG event to the tune of $1 million and agreed to perform the show's final scene, a birthing monologue titled, "I Was There in the Room."
