My Dysfunctional Vagina with the NYU Women's Initiative

My Dysfunctional Vagina Promo Picture.png

After several disappointing visits with a gynecologist, and many failed efforts to "Sex and the City it up" with friends, Maryann Aita takes it upon herself to figure out what's going on with her body and to fix it, relying mostly on whatever she could find on Amazon.com. Half storytelling, half stand-up comedy, My Dysfunctional Vagina is a hilarious (and just a touch sentimental) show about a woman taking charge of her own body.

7:30-8:00 PM Check-in
8:00-9:00 PM Performance
9:00-10:00 PM Networking with food and non-alcoholic beverages. Please feel free to bring your own wine and beer!

We wish to express our great thanks to Ron Kain, President of NoHo Sound & Stereo, which is a premium home audio dealer, for the use of his outstanding showroom, as our venue.

This event is open to NYU Alumni. If you are an industry member or would like to cover this event, please contact me for comp tickets.

My Dysfunctional Vagina

Saturday, July 6
8:00 p.m.

The PIT, 123 E. 24th St (b/t Park & Lex) 

My Dysfunctional Vagina is half comedy, half storytelling adventure about “Detective” Maryann solving the mystery of her broken vagina. You’ll hear her horrifically embarrassing story of losing her virginity in her twenties and her very amateur method of fixing her hostile vagina (with sex toys she bought on Amazon). It’s mostly hilarious, and just a touch sentimental, but perfect for fans of Law & Order, vibrators, and vagina. Lots of vagina.

Written and performed by Maryann Aita. Directed by Amanda Sabater. Tickets $12 in advance or at the door.
