LYSISTRATA JONES BROADWAY REVIEWS

Opening Night: December 14, 2011

Show NY TIMES EW AP HR VARIETY
Broadway Review Broadway Review Broadway Review Broadway Review Broadway Review

Synopsis: 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 court side 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, Divine Sister have given the classic Greek tale a riotous new twist. Lysistrata Jones takes student activism to a whole new level and celebrates the journey of discovering and embracing who you truly are. Do your Duty, no more Booty!

NEW YORK TIMES REVIEW:

"That blond babe we fell in love with in June is still looking hot in the cold light of December."

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY REVIEW:

"After a successful run last summer at the tiny gym of Greenwich Village's Judson Memorial Church, the goofy pop musical Lysistrata Jones has advanced to the big leagues of Broadway. (See EW's original review here.) Why? I have no idea. It's a little like a solid junior-high basketball team playing Madison Square Garden."

ASSOCIATED PRESS REVIEW:

"Do they give Tony Awards for best abs? If so, there's really only one clear winner so far this season – "Lysistrata Jones.""

HOLLYWOOD REPORTER REVIEW:

"Douglas Carter Beane and Lewis Flinn's musical update on the Ancient Greek sex comedy has its bubbly charms, but it also demonstrates the challenges of transferring scrappy downtown stage successes to Broadway's less forgiving environment."

VARIETY REVIEW:

"Sex, gags and dunk shots mix in Douglas Carter Beane's "Lysistrata Jones," about a group of cheerleaders who decide to remain chaste to motivate their boyfriends on the Athens U. basketball team to put an end to the school's 33-year losing streak. This college-level "High School Musical" is layered with giddy and sometimes wicked sophistication, and its company of 12 delivers bright performances backed by energetically brisk staging in this sweetly silly romp. Auds will find it difficult to abstain from laughter."

CHICAGO TRIBUNE REVIEW:

"In Aristophanes' Greek comedy "Lysistrata" — part of the Athens season of 411 B.C. — the war-weary women of Greece decide to deny their husbands and lovers sexual favors to induce them to negotiate peace. In Douglas Carter Beane's new American musical "Lysistrata Jones" — part of the Broadway season of 2011 — the fun-starved women of Athens University decide to deny their boyfriends and lovers sexual favors to induce them to win a basketball game."

BACKSTAGE REVIEW:

"When I heard that "Lysistrata Jones," the nifty little musical presented Off-Broadway by Transport Group earlier this year, was making the leap to the Main Stem, I wasn't sure if its intimate charms would survive in a larger house. This cute update of Aristophanes' classic comedy worked quite well at the gym at Judson Memorial Church, where set designer Allen Moyer and director-choreographer Dan Knechtges transformed the space into a basketball court and a variety of settings at a small college, where the titular heroine wages a war against indifference."
