About In the Body of the World

The Tony Award-winning author, performer and activist Eve Ensler, whose The Vagina Monologues is an international sensation, comes to MTC with a powerful new play based on her critically acclaimed memoir. 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. Directing this bold, unflinching and inspiring piece is Tony Award winner Diane Paulus (Waitress, Pippin).

Over 20 performances of In the Body of the World will be followed by a free ‘Beyond the Stage’ talkback with special guest speakers, including Cynthia Nixon, Diane Paulus and Eve Ensler. For a calendar with talkback dates, visit BodyOfTheWorldPlay.com

MTC at New York City Center - Stage I

131 West 55th Street, New York, NY 10019

Under the dynamic leadership of Artistic Director Lynne Meadow and Executive Producer Barry Grove, Manhattan Theatre Club has grown in four and a half decades from a prolific Off-Off-Broadway showcase into one of the country’s most acclaimed theatre organizations. Founded in 1970, MTC is committed to the creation of new plays and musicals through an intensive Artistic Development Program that offers commissions, script evaluation, dramaturgical support, readings and workshops. Using the work on its stages, MTC’s Education Program promotes active participation in the arts through in-class instruction, student and family matinees, teacher training, internships and internet-based distance learning. In constantly seeking new ways to innovate, MTC keeps theatre alive and relevant. MTC now includes a subscriber base of 20,000 and produces on Broadway in the Samuel J. Friedman Theatre (renamed in 2008 after the pioneering Broadway publicist) on West 47th Street and at the historic New York City Center complex on West 55th Street. Each season is distinguished by the variety of the repertoire. Stage I seats 300.
