Lysistrata Jones - 2011 - Off-Broadway

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; The Little Dog Laughed) and composer-lyricist Lewis Flinn (Divine Sister) have given the classic Greek tale a riotous new twist. Directed & choreographed by Tony-nominated Dan Knechtges (Xanadu) 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.


Running Time: 2 hours and 15 minutes, with one intermission
