About this show

Travel from ancient Greece to present-day Athens University in this updated retelling of the classic Greek play. Featuring a new, infectious score, Lysistrata Jones follows "Lyssie J," a spunky transfer student. She and her brigade of sisters keep their physical affections under lock and key until their basketball player boyfriends start winning games, learning an important life lesson: absence might make the heart grow fonder, but abstinence makes the heart grow fondest. See what happens when women take fate into their own hands when the men around them refuse in this musical reboot of Aristophanes' bawdy ancient comedy.
