I wanted to send you information about a show that is coming to St.
Louis and hope that you will share it with other interested friends,
colleagues, and members of your organization. Eve Ensler, author of
"The Vagina Monologues" will be in St. Louis from January 3rd to 8th
with her new show, "The Good Body" where she will be performing at the
Edison Theatre. I had a chance to see the show in New York City on
Broadway where I was blown away by the issues that she delves into and
I left feeling quite inspired by her words and the words of those she
We would love it if you would pass along the info to friends that are
in or close to the cities Eve will be visiting which would be huge help
to the show and V-Day. A portion of the ticket sales will be
benefiting V-Day (www.vday.org), which will get us a few steps closer
to ending global violence against women and girls. I hope this reaches
you in good spirits. Please don't hesitate to call or e-mail if you
have any questions or would like to get more involved with V-Day's

EVE ENSLER TO TOUR HER NEW SHOW - ‘THE GOOD BODY’
Eve plans to explore and expose even more when she tours North America
in her new play. From October through April she will play 20 cities!
In THE GOOD BODY she takes an inside look at the outside, exploring the
cultures of beauty, food and desire through the eyes of women around
the world. This provocative, hilarious, and profoundly moving show
promises to be no less extraordinary than Eve’s previous triumph, The
Vagina Monologues, which inspired a worldwide revolution. A portion of
proceeds from the tour will be benefit V-Day, the global movement to
end violence against women and girls that Eve founded.
For more information on the tour including updated schedules, show
times and ticketing information visit www.thegoodbody.com
What critics are saying about The Good Body:
"Forthrightly funny, bristling with wisecracks
and exotically harvested snippets of wisdom."
- Charles Isherwood, The New York Times
"PASSIONATE, FUNNY, FRANK, REVEALING, even SHOCKING.
Ensler throws herself into each character with the same ease
personable connection to the audience that made 'Vagina' such a hit."
- Robert Hurwitt, San Francisco Chronicle
We are writing to ask if you’d like to VOLUNTEER YOUR V-EXPERIENCE!!
There will be V-tables in the lobby of each theater along the tour.
These tables will contain literature about V-Day and information on how
to get involved with the organization. Distributing information,
answering questions, and guiding audience members in ways to get
involved is an integral part of V-Day’s campaign to end violence
against women and girls and a way for us to build up our database of
interested activists. This is a very important and sensitive job, and
requires the help of dedicated and responsible activists. We are
looking for volunteers to arrive at the theatre an hour before the show
and stay a half hour after (3 hour time commitment). We are working
on getting complimentary tickets for volunteers in each city Eve visits
as a thank you for your hard work. Please contact us if you are
interested or have any questions concerning V-Tables and volunteering.
