The Athens University basketball team hasnt 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 pop 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.
With its infectious original score and a hysterical book from four-time Tony nominated playwright Douglas Carter Beane and composer and lyricist Lewis Flinn, Lysistrata Jones will add fun to any theatre season! LJ played on Broadway at the Walter Kerr Theater, coming straight from the critically acclaimed Transport Group production at The Gym at Judson in Greenwich Village. It also played in Dallas, where it was known as Give It Up.
