Photo Coverage: Inside EMOTIONAL CREATURE's Opening Night

Emotional Creature, the new play written by Tony Award®-winning playwright, performer, activist, and The Vagina Monologues author Eve Ensler, gets a New York premiere this fall. Directed by Obie Award-winner Jo Bonney (By the Way, Meet Vera Stark) with original music and musical direction by Charl-Johan Lingenfelder, Emotional Creatureopened on last night, November 12, direct from an acclaimed World Premiere at Berkeley Repertory Theatre in California. BroadwayWorld was there for the opening and we bring you coverage below!

The cast of Emotional Creature features a young and vibrant ensemble of six: Ashley Bryant (A Free Man of Color); Molly Carden (The Bird and the Two-Ton Weight at Ensemble Studio Theatre); Emily S. Grosland (Off Broadway debut); 2012 Theatre World Award Winner Joaquina Kalukango (Hurt Village); Sade Namei (The Flying Latke at The Flea) and Olivia Oguma (A Christmas Carol; Mamma Mia!).

Based on Ensler’s 2010 bestselling 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. Emotional Creature was first workshopped at New York Stage and Film at Vassar College in August 2010, with subsequent workshops in Johannesburg, South Africa and Paris, France.

The creative team for Emotional Creature also includes Luam (Choreography), Myung Hee Cho
