Alison Leiby's solo show Oh God, A Show About Abortion begins its encore run August 8 at Off-Broadway's Cherry Lane Theatre. The original run was presented May 5–June 30.
Oh God, A Show About Abortion also played two performances July 20 at Largo in Los Angeles and has now returned to The Big Apple for 15 encore performances through August 26.
Directed by Lila Neugebauer and presented by Broad City co-creator and star Ilana Glazer, the show sees Leiby telling the story of a momentous summer that involved a scary visit to the "Fertility" section of a Missouri CVS, two root canals, and, finally, a trip to Planned Parenthood.
During its original Off-Broadway run, select performances featured informational talkbacks and opportunities to donate to organizations, including Planned Parenthood, A is For, and the Center for Reproductive Rights. The show's production company, Bad Robot Productions, matched all donations. Leiby also hosted a one-day-only bake sale to support abortion access.
Oh God, A Show About Abortion features lighting design by Amina Alexander and sound design by Margaret Montagna. Visit CherryLaneTheatre.org.
