Athens U. cheerleader Lyssie J. convinces her squad not to “give it up” to their basketball player boyfriends until the team finally breaks its 30-year losing streak. What happens during this sex strike is something special—maybe abstinence really does make the heart grow fonder. Based on Aristophanes’ 2,500-year-old Greek comedy, Lysistrata, the story of a group of women who withhold sex to inspire their men to find a peaceful resolution to the Peloponnesian War, Lysistrata Jones had its Broadway premiere in 2011.
With its infectious original score and a hysterical book from three-time Tony®-nominated playwright Douglas Carter Beane (The Little Dog Laughed, Sister Act), and composer and lyricist Lewis Flinn (The Divine Sister), Lysistrata Jones is a blast.
And Pace Performing Arts is taking on this battle of the sexes as part of their next production on November 13–17 in the Schimmel Theatre.
Performances will be held on November 13–15 at 7:30 p.m., November 16 at 2:00 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. and November 17 at 1:00 p.m. and 7:30 p.m.
