The production is described as follows: "What drives an artist to stand in her black corset in Times Square on a soapbox? It began at 17 with her first shoplifted bra. Over the course of this unfiltered and soul-baring event, Diana Oh's personal collection of unmentionables comes on and off as she and her band ignite the audience to create a saner, safer, more courageous world for us all. {My Lingerie Play} 2017 is a play, a protest, a concert, and an installation all at once.

Diana and her band explore sexual and gender politics through mainstream culture's relationship to the female and gender-queer body. This will be the final installation in a collection of 10 new visual and performance installations for 2017 as supported by the Venturous Theater Fund of Tides Foundation."
