  Lysistrata Jones at Red Branch Theatre

Lysistrata Jones

Red Branch Theatre
9130-I Red Branch Road Columbia

Travel from Ancient Greece to present day Athens University in this updated retelling of the classic Greek play. Featuring a new, infectious score, Lysistrata Jones follows "Lyssie J," a spunky transfer student. She and her brigade of sisters keep their physical affections under lock and key until their basketball player boyfriends start winning games, learning an important life lesson: absence might make the heart grow fonder, but abstinence makes the heart grow fondest. See what happens when women take fate into their own hands when the men around them refuse in this musical re-boot of Aristophanes' bawdy ancient comedy.

MD Theatre Guide - Highly Recommended

"...The positive message of the play is to not accept mediocrity and to never give up. That message and the entertaining way in which it is delivered makes “Lysistrata Jones” the slam dunk, feel-good musical of the summer!"

"...Lysistrata Jones is an optimistic mashup of "Glee," "Step It Up," "Pitch Perfect" and every other dance, music and singing competition show you've ever seen. The score is bouncy and catchy, full of hip-hop and dance tunes that contain all the noodling and vocal fry flourishes we know and love about modern pop music. The choreography smashingly combines athletic cheerleading moves with the bump-and-grinding motions seen on the dance floor."
