Lysistrata, The Vaudeville

Translation by Ranjit Bolt

Adaptation by Mary Jo Duprey

Music by Jeremy Mann

The timeless tale of Lysistrata and her gal friends demanding world peace by withholding sex from their warring husbands is retold in a witty, naughty, rambunctious musical. This cross-gendered version of the Greek classic is part vaudeville, part burlesque, and an unapologetic return to Golden Age Musical Comedy.
