Egads! Theatre Company Presents LYSISTRATA JONES: A MUSICAL COMEDY, 6/13-7/13

EGADS! THEATRE COMPANY presents Lysistrata Jones at the Off Center Theatre in Crown Center. Opening on Saturday, June 14th (preview on the 13th) and running through Sunday, July 13th.

While one character sings, "It's sex, it's love, it's even sport -- it's two hours traffic on our court," Aphrodite is probably LOL'ing over this hilarious musical comedy written by Tony nominee Douglas Carter Beane, with a fresh, contemporary pop score by Lewis Flinn.

While the theaters in the parks will be featuring familiar family fare, Lysistrata Jones will be heating things up on stage inside air-conditioned comfort. EGADS returns to its "campy" roots for this slightly naughty and enormously fun romp. VERY loosely based on Aristophanes' classic Greek Comedy ("so sue us- it's public domain"), Lysistrata Jones is a modern day fable about a girl who decides it's time to live up to her full potential by convincing the ladies of her cheerleading squad to refuse sexual favors to their boyfriends on the Athens University Spartans' Basketball team until they win a game!

After a critically acclaimed off-Broadway run, the show later opened on Broadway. The show received a "thumbs up" from all five leading critics in NYC. Come see it during its Midwest premier filled with KC's youthful rising stars who will have the audience cheering along with them throughout this fast-paced show.

"This super-fun musical is the season's tastiest treat" - New York Post

"It warrants... lusty cheers" - New York Times

EGADS! THEATRE COMPANY was voted "Best Local Theater Company" in 2011 and 2012 by the Pitch readers.
