The Powers That Be


Venus celebrates her 70th woman empowering production with, The Powers That Be! Venus Theater is one of only 28 women's theatres in the US. Venus also stands among the longest-running women's theatre in the world. 

The Church of SHE is called to take over the Light of the World church in Mexico. This brand new work evokes contemporary issues of human atrocities as well as absurdities set to pop-culture mockery, poetry, and rock. Six women take the stage with their instruments and voices and only one purpose, to change the world.

Goddesses take over the altar and slay patriarchal monsters with songs of truth. Femininity will rule this day!
