    Synopsis: 

    The Good Body, a new play written and performed by Eve Ensler, the author of the international phenomenon The Vagina Monologues, comes to Broadway!

    The Vagina Monologues challenged notions of acceptable topics in theater and became the impetus for a worldwide movement to combat violence towards women. Now, in her new show, Eve Ensler turns her unique eye to the rest of the female form. Whether undergoing Botox injections or living beneath burkhas, women of all cultures and backgrounds feel compelled to change the way they look in order to fit in, to be accepted, to be "good." Merging these cross-cultural explorations with her own personal journey to come to terms with her "less-than-flat, post-40s stomach," Ensler has created The Good Body. Peter Askin directs.

    Our Bellies, Ourselves: Eve Ensler Talks Fat

    Charles Isherwood

    November 16, 2004: For a feminist icon, Eve Ensler is appealingly ordinary. This may even be the secret of her success. A more aggressive or imposing figure might not have been able to coax women by the dozens, from cultures across the globe, to speak frankly, affectionately, even lustily about their sexual experiences.
