Emotional Creature - 2012 - Off-Broadway History , Info & More

Based on Eve 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.
