‘Lysistrata Jones’ to jump to Broadway this fall
Question of the Day
NEW YORK (AP) - The bouncy comedy “Lysistrata Jones” is making the leap from an off-Broadway gym to the Great White Way.
Producers said Wednesday that the musical written by Douglas Carter Beane and Lewis Flinn will begin preview performances Nov. 12 and officially open Dec. 14 at the Walter Kerr Theatre on 48th Street.
In the show, a modern-day college team of slacker basketball players is encouraged to win a game by their girlfriends, who decide to withhold their affections until victory.
The musical is loosely based on “Lysistrata,” the circa 411 B.C. classical anti-war comedy by Aristophanes. It was last seen in New York in the gym of Judson Memorial Church in Greenwich Village, in which some of the cast members played basketball.
Casting will be announced later.
