Women’s Project Theater will present the world premiere of Stuffed, written by and starring two-time Grammy-nominated comic Lisa Lampanelli (HBO, Comedy Central, The Howard Stern Show).
Stuffed, beginning previews September 23, explores the complexity of women’s relationship to food and body image. “A bulimic, a compulsive eater, a confident overweight gal, and a chronically thin chick walk into a play and… what happens next could only be told by comic mastermind Lisa Lampanelli,” state production notes. The play features additional material by Ashley Austin Morris and direction by Jackson Gay (These Paper Bullets), with more casting to be announced at a later date.
The world premiere will officially open October 7 at Off-Broadway's McGinn/Cazale Theater and is scheduled to play through November 6.
“When it comes to blue jeans, should one opt for a camel toe or a muffin top?” ask press notes. “And the ultimate question: can food and body-image issues ever truly be conquered or are we all just destined to be Stuffed?”
