Broadwayworld brings you a first look of the production below!

The Athens University basketball team hasn't won a game in 30 years. But when spunky transfer student Lysistrata Jones dares the squad's fed-up girlfriends to stop ‘giving it up' to their boyfriends until they win a game, their legendary losing streak could be coming to an end.

Join Lyssie and her girl-power posse courtside for the New York City premiere of this boisterous new pop musical comedy. Adapted from Aristophanes' comedy, Lysistrata, Tony-nominated bookwriter Douglas Carter Beane (Sister Act, Xanadu,The Little Dog Laughed) and composer-lyricist Lewis Flinn (The Divine Sister) have given the classic Greek tale a riotous new twist. Directed and choreographed by Tony nominee Dan Knechtges (Xanadu, The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee) and staged in an actual gymnasium, Lysistrata Jones takes student activism to a whole new level and celebrates the journey of discovering and embracing who you truly are.

Lysistrata Jones plays at the Gym at Judson, 243 Thompson Street at Washington Square South, through Sunday, June 19. The performance schedule is Tuesday through Friday, and Sunday at 8pm. The Saturday performance schedule is as follows: Saturday, May 21 at 2pm and 7pm; Saturday, May 28 is at 2pm; Saturday, June 4 and 18 at 4pm and 9pm; Saturday, June 11 at 8pm. There is no performance Tuesday, June 14. Tickets are $48 - $60 and may be purchased by visiting www.transportgroup.org or by phoning 866 811-4111 .
