LOS ANGELES — Lena Dunham is canceling her feminist newsletter’s “America IRL” tour this summer to tend to her health.

Dunham said Friday in a post on that recent surgery and physical therapy to treat endometriosis have caused “the greatest amount of physical pain I’ve ever experienced” and that she isn’t up for the cross-country tour with “Girls” co-creator Jenni Konner.

The 31-year-old “Girls” creator announced last month that her Lenny Letter would come to life as a variety show in six cities beginning May 31 in St. Louis. A Chicago date had been scheduled for June 2 at the Harris Theater.

Dunham said tickets will be refunded and that she plans to make personal donations to the various nonprofit organizations that worked on the tour.

Endometriosis is a disorder that causes uterine tissue to grow in other areas of the body.
