The BBC said the show was set up by the V-Day Foundation, a charity run by "Monologues" scribe Eve Ensler, which raises awareness of violence against women.
Indian and Pakistani actresses also acted in the show in Bombay, also called Mumbai.
"Violence comes in many forms and affects women all over the world," the BBC quoted Fonda as saying after the performance.
Fonda said she took a back seat in each of her three marriages: "Behind the closed doors of my marriage, I would give up all my power. I would silence my own voice to be accepted. My whole life was about pleasing my man."
Tomei said acting in the show in the United States was a liberating experience.
"It's important to honor the point of view of the other half of the population and hear the voices of those who are not normally heard," she said.
