Emotional Creature, the new play by Tony-winning playwright, activist and The Vagina Monologues author Eve Ensler, begins performances on October 26. Playing at the Romulus Linney Courtyard Theatre at the Pershing Square Signature Center, the off-Broadway show's opening night is set for November 12.
Directed by Jo Bonney and based on Ensler’s 2010 best-selling book, Emotional Creature explores what it is to be a girl – all the joys and thrills, the rites of passage, the growing pains, and the unique pressures – through a series of original monologues, stories and songs. This fully-staged production spans wildly disparate cultures and continents, highlighting the diversity and commonality of the issues girls face, both personal and political, the world over.
The cast of Emotional Creature features Ashley Bryant, Molly Carden, Emily S. Grosland, Joaquina Kalukango, Sade Namei and Olivia Oguma. The production features choreography by Luam, scenic and costume design by Myung Hee Cho, lighting design by Lap Chi Chu and projection design by Shawn Sagady.
