### Sex in the City With Religion On the Side

Tara Greenway has certainly chosen the theater subject of the month for her one-woman show: vaginas. Up on 43d Street, Eve Ensler is preparing a return engagement of her alternately serious and funny 1996 one-woman show, The Vagina Monologues. Down on Grove Street, Ms. Greenway is appearing in Missionary Position, a one-act comic drama about vulvar vestibulitis. Ms. Greenways show has its charms, but its message is a little confusing. For almost the first hour of the production, I was sure I had been given the background reading material for the wrong show. Missionary Position seemed to be, as its title would indicate, about one young womans rigid small-town Christian upbringing (no drinking, no dancing, no card playing, no sex before marriage, Bible verses for every occasion) and the inevitable conflicts she faces when on her 22d birthday she moves to New York City: into Times Square, no less. But the play never really settles on its theme.. Anita Gates reviews one-woman play Missionary Position, written and performed by Tara Greenway; photo (M)

### Why the Caged First Ladies Sing

Eleanor Roosevelt warbles a Wagnerian love duet with her pal Lorena Hickok. Mamie Eisenhower serenades herself in the style of a Broadway showstopper. Jackie Kennedy uses the art song to ponder the immortality of her pink pillbox hat. With moments like these, Michael John LaChiusas First Lady Suite trailed the purple fragrance of high camp when it opened at the Public Theater in 1993. Here, undoubtedly, was a show destined to become at least a minor cult classic. But as the powerfully sung revival at the Connelly Theater makes clear, this whimsical chamber musical has always been more than a hoot. Though it makes unabashed use of the easy iconography of fame, First Lady Suite never coasts on the flashbulb-lighted surfaces of its subjects. That Mr. LaChiusa sees those glossy surfaces as something like prison walls keeps his show from turning into the musical equivalent of an Andy Warhol portrait..

### 20th-Century Works By One Who Doesnt Play by the Rules

Young composers grappling with the question of how to write accessible music without trading in originality for manipulativeness might benefit from an examination of Leon Kirchners music. As a celebration of Mr. Kirchners 80th birthday, Continuum offered a program of his chamber and solo works at Merkin Concert Hall on Saturday evening. What came through the groups finely polished performances of these works, composed between 1952 and 1995, was the degree to which Mr. Kirchner has avoided stylistic orthodoxies and counter-orthodoxies and created a rigorous, efficient language that yields communicative, moving music. The program opened with Flutings (1973), a solo flute work that, in its original context as the curtain raiser for Mr. Kirchners opera Lily, evoked the operas jungle setting. On its own it is a demonstration of compositional and interpretive virtuosity. Mr. Kirchner, like Debussy and Luciano Berio before him, used the flutes bright timbre to define a small, colorful world. Ulla Suokko-Hixson gave the work a focused reading in which lyricism and technical acrobatics were carefully balanced..
