GLORIA: A LIFE brings us a richly detailed tapestry about one of the most inspiring and remarkable Jewish women of our time. Five decades after Gloria Steinem began raising her voice for equality and championing those of others, her vision is as urgent as ever. Gloria’s life’s work and philosophy on the necessity of conversation as a catalyst for change offer us all a path forward in a way that only live theater can. The first act tells her story, and the second invites the audience to share their own.

“Gloria Steinem is a visionary, an icon, a hero to millions of women and me.”
OPRAH

“Gloria: A Life offers an extraordinary glimpse of who we are, how far we’ve come, and how much farther we still need to go.”
BOSTON GLOBE
