A World Premiere
by Lisa Lampanelli
directed by Jackson Gay 
with additional material by Ashley Austin Morris
starring Ann Harada, Zainab Jah, Lisa Lampanelli, Jessica Luck

September 23 thru November 13, 2016

A confident overweight gal, a chronically thin chick, a compulsive eater, and a bulimic walk into a play and… what happens next could only be told by comic mastermind Lisa Lampanelli. With signature wit and razor-sharp insight, Lampanelli's famously irreverent voice comes to the New York stage with Stuffed, bringing together four women’s disparate stories to paint an acerbically witty and ultimately poignant portrait of the insanity of a world that forces women to address hard-hitting issues like: Is eating an ice cream sandwich in the shower an emotionally fulfilling activity? When it comes to blue jeans, should one opt for a camel toe or a muffin top? And the ultimate question: can food and body-image issues ever truly be conquered or are we all just destined to be Stuffed?
