Eve Ensler's 'Emotional Creature' Comes To New York City

Posted: Updated:

NEW YORK — A play based on Eve Ensler's 2010 best-seller "Emotional Creature" is heading off-Broadway.

Producers announced Wednesday that the stage adaptation, also written by "The Vagina Monologues" author, will be performed at The Pershing Square Signature Center this fall.

The play, starring six women, is a collage of monologues and chat sessions about body image, dieting, sex and abortion, among other topics. There is also peppy music by Charl-Johan Lingenfelder.

Previews begin Oct. 26 with an opening night set for Nov. 12.

"Emotional Creature" was workshopped at New York Stage and Film at Vassar College in August 2010, with subsequent stagings in Johannesburg and Paris. It had its world premiere this month at Berkeley Repertory in California.
