Do your Duty, no more Booty!

Judson Gym
243 Thompson Street at Washington Square South

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 (The Little Dog Laughed) and composer-lyricist Lewis Flinn (The 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.

Effervescent, tasty and surprisingly filling new musical...This goofy tale of sex and basketball on a “less than competitive” college campus exudes the kind of youth-fueled energy that revs up the metabolism of everyone in the bleachers.
