Lysistrata Jones

Broadway Musical — 

After a sold-out downtown run, Lysistrata Jones arrives on Broadway with an infectiously feel-good original score, genre-defying choreography and a genuinely hilarious book from three-time Tony®-nominated playwright Douglas Carter Beane (The Little Dog Laughed), composer and lyricist Lewis Flinn (The Divine Sister) and Tony®-nominated director and choreographer Dan Knechtges (The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee).

The Athens University basketball team hasn’t won a game in 30 years. But when irresistible 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 new pop musical comedy, Lyssie J. and her girl-power posse give Aristophanes’ classic comedy a sexy, modern twist and find that abstinence truly does make the heart grow fonder.

Read TDF Stages' exclusive interview with stars Patti Murin and Josh Segarra, who tell us how they mastered the show's (roughly) 3 billion jokes.
