V – The Power of Art – Part 1

Season 2 • Episode 7 • Length: 31 minutes

Activist and artist V (formerly Eve Ensler), opens her new play WILD: A Musical Becoming this week. In part one of this two-part conversation with host Marianne Schnall, V discusses her passionate concern for the future of the planet and her faith in young people as her inspiration for the piece developed in collaboration with Tony Award-winner Idina Menzel, Golden Globe-nominated songwriter Justin Tranter, songwriter Caroline Pennell, and acclaimed director Diane Paulus. V also discusses her nearly 25-year campaign to end violence against women, girls, and the planet with the organization V-Day and illuminates how we heal within the community and our own bodies.
