According to NY Magazine, Lisa Lampanelli is busy creating a one-woman Broadway show with the help of Alan Zweibel. Lampanelli commented: "It's something that I haven't done yet. I'm scared to death because I have to talk about the real stuff. Like, no stand-up; there's not one line of stand-up ... it's pretty much going to focus on my two main obsessions in life, which are men and food. And now that I'm married I only have one obsession, food, so I'm going to stick to that."
