Two-time Grammy-nominated comedian Lisa Lampanelli returns off-Broadway with an encore engagement of her comedy Stuffed. She is joined on stage by Lauren Ann Brickman, as well as "Orange is the New Black" alumni Marsha Stephanie Blake and Eden Malyn.
Stuffed previously played a limited off-Broadway engagement at the McGinn/Cazale Theatre from September 23 to November 6, 2016.
This show has now closed. See our list of theatre tickets for shows currently on sale.
