Revelers chew over ‘Body’

Ensler's latest B'way effort has gals applauding

Eve Ensler‘s solo Broadway show “The Good Body” tells women not to worry about stomach size, and the mini-marshmallows splayed out on every table at the Guastavino’s opening night party Monday tested guests on whether they got the message.

Jane Fonda chatted with Sally Field but refused to talk to Daily Variety, perhaps (accurately) predicting an interrogation about whether the body-conscious exercise guru agrees with Ensler’s advice.

Ensler’s partner Ariel Jordan didn’t mind Ensler reenacting a spat of theirs on stage.

“We have this kind of an argument three times a week,” said the Israeli artist-psychotherapist, “and I never understood it. Seeing the play actually helped me.”

Like so many works in 2004, the play is actually an anti-Bush diatribe.

“Capitalism feeds on making us all believe something’s wrong with us,” said Ensler, who is now working on a more overtly political play.

She grabbed Jordan and commanded, “Let’s go eat.”
