About this show

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. In this boisterous new musical comedy, Lyssie J. and her girl-power posse give Aristophanes' classic comedy a sexy, modern twist and take student activism to a whole new level. Lysistrata Jones is written by Tony nominated bookwriter Douglas Carter Beane (Sister Act, Xanadu, The Little Dog Laughed) and composer/lyricist Lewis Flinn (The Divine Sister), and is directed and choreographed by Tony nominee Dan Knechtges (Xanadu, The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee).
