Highlights From Lysistrata Jones — Shooting to Score
Lysistrata Jones, the pop-rock musical comedy that takes Aristophanes' 411 BC comedy about a sex strike and dunks it into the world of college basketball, made the move to Broadway's Walter Kerr Theatre following a summer 2011 run in a downtown gymnasium. The kinetic, satiric show by composer-lyricist Lewis Flinn and Tony Award-nominated librettist Douglas Carter Beane (with smooth moves by director-choreographer Dan Knechtges) features Patti Murin as the spunky title cheerleader who find her purpose by declaring "No More Giving It Up!"

Set in the magical world of La Belle Epoque Paris, where fashion, glamour, and passion prevail, Lerner and Loewe's celebrated musical is a romantic comedy about one young woman's journey to find her true self... and her true love.
