MTC presents In the Body of the World, off-Broadway

In the Body of the World

Manhattan Theatre Club presents the New York premiere of the American Repertory Theater production of In the Body of the World, written and performed by Tony recipient Eve Ensler and directed by Tony winner Diane Paulus, which will begin previews at New York City Center - Stage I on January 16, 2018, before an official opening on February 6.

Synopsis: "This new play is based on Eve Ensler's critically acclaimed memoir. While working with women suffering from the ravages of war in the Democratic Republic of Congo, Ensler was stunned by a life-threatening diagnosis. Told with her signature brand of humor, Ensler's personal journey uncovers surprising connections between her body and the earth and how illness can be both transformative and transcendent."

Eve Ensler is an author, performer and activist, who received the special Isabelle Stevenson Tony Award in 2011. She also earned an OBIE Award for writing 'The Vagina Monologues.' She made her Broadway debut in 2004 in her self-penned solo play 'The Good Body' and her off-Broadway credits include 'Emotional Creature,' 'The Treatment,' 'Necessary Targets,' and 'Ladies.'
