"Orange is the New Black" alumni Marsha Stephanie Blake and Eden Malyn join previously announced Golden Globe nominee Nikki Blonsky to complete the cast of the return off-Broadway engagement of Stuffed, written by and starring two-time Grammy-nominated comedian Lisa Lampanelli. Previews begin at the Westside Theatre on October 5, 2017, before an official opening on October 19. The production is currently booking through to February 18, 2018.

Ms. Lampanelli released the following statement:

""I am beyond thrilled to have these amazing and talented women joining Stuffed. It is so important to me to show how complicated relationships with food and body image impact all kinds of people, and I am honored to have Marsha Stephanie and Eden alongside me and Nikki to share the humor and the heartbreak in these stories."

Synopsis: "The four characters in Stuffed are a lifelong dieter, a bulimic, a confident overweight gal, and a permanent size-zero. The play explores the crazy-making world of our relationships with food and it doesn't shy away from tough questions like: Is eating an ice cream sandwich in the shower as emotionally fulfilling as it sounds? When it comes to jeans, what's better -- muffin top or camel toe? And, if Oprah, the most powerful person in the world, can't conquer her food issues, what can the rest of us do but laugh as we try?"

The comedy is directed by Jackson Gay and also features additional material by Ashley Austin Morris.

The creative team behind Stuffed has also been announced and features scenic design by Antje Ellermann, costume design by Jessica Ford, lighting design by Amith Chandrashaker, and sound design by Elisheba Ittoop.

Stuffed previously played a limited off-Broadway engagement at the McGinn/Cazale Theatre from September 23 to November 6, 2016.

Stuffed is produced off-Broadway by Rachel Karpf.
