The world premiere of Stuffed, written by and starring two-time Grammy-nominated comic Lisa Lampanelli, officially opens Off-Broadway October 7. The new production from the Women’s Project Theater explores the complexity of women’s relationships to food and body image through Lampanelli’s signature comedic style.

Joining Lampanelli onstage are Avenue Q star Ann Harada, Eclipsed star Zainab Jah and Jessica Luck. The new work features additional material by Ashley Austin Morris and direction by Jackson Gay (These Paper Bullets).

The play’s central characters are a bulimic, a compulsive eater, a confident overweight woman and a chronically thin one. Previews began September 23 at Off-Broadway's McGinn/Cazale Theatre. Performances are currently scheduled to play through November 6.

“When it comes to blue jeans, should one opt for a camel toe or a muffin top?” ask production notes for Stuffed. “And the ultimate question: can food and body-image issues ever truly be conquered or are we all just destined to be Stuffed?”
