Swine Palace Presents “The Good Body” Benefiting STAR @ LSU College of Music And Dramatic Arts
Mar 5 @ 7:00 pm – 10:00 pm

Swine Palace presents Eve Ensler’s “The Good Body” on March 5th, 6th and 7th at the LSU Studio Theatre in the LSU Music and Dramatic Arts Building as a benefit for STAR.

Tickets are $15 in advance and $20 at the door. Doors at 7 p.m., performance at 7:30 p.m.

Eve Ensler, author of “The Vagina Monologues,” turns her unique eye to the rest of the female form with “The Good Body.” Whether undergoing botox injections or living beneath burqas, women of all cultures and backgrounds feel compelled to change the way they look in order to fit in. “The Good Body” merges cross-cultural explorations with Eve’s own personal journey coming to terms with her “less-than-flat, post-forties stomach.”

“Passionate, funny, frank, revealing, even shocking, and genuinely committed to improving life on this planet.” – San Francisco Chronicle
