"Probably the most important piece of political theater of the last decade."--The New York Times
"This play changed the world. Seeing it changed my soul.
Performing in it changed my life. I am forever indebted to Eve
Ensler and the transformative legacy of this play."--Kerry
Washington "Spellbinding, funny, and almost unbearably moving.
. . . Written with a bluntness that is nevertheless intensely
lyrical, it is both a work of art and an incisive piece of cultural
history, a poem and a polemic, a performance and a balm and a
benediction."--Variety "Frank, humorous and moving . . . a
compelling rhapsody of the female essence. Ultimately, Ensler
achieves something extraordinary."--Chicago Tribune "Often
wrenching, frequently riotous. . . . Ensler is an impassioned
wit."--Los Angeles Times
"Women have entrusted Eve with their most intimate experiences, from sex to birthing. . . . I think readers, men as well as women, will emerge from these pages feeling more free within themselves--and about each other."--Gloria Steinem "Eve Ensler is the Pied Piper. She is leading women and the world to a different
consciousness of the essence of women."--Gillian Anderson "I feel my life has changed. You don't just hook up with Eve, you become part of her crusade. There's a corps of us who are Eve's army."--Glenn Close
