“THIS SUPER-FUN MUSICAL IS THE SEASON’S TASTIEST TREAT!”
New York Post
The New York Times - CRITIC’S PICK
“GIRLS, BOYS, LOVE, BASKETBALL—AND A GOOD TIME!
A lot of people whine that Broadway doesn’t know how to make entertaining musicals anymore. Happily, it turns out that Broadway still knows how to make ’em. With its catchy pop score, charming cast, zippy staging and wickedly funny book, LYSISTRATA JONES is
ONE OF THE SEASON’S TASTIEST PIECES OF CANDY!”
Elizabeth Vincentelli, New York Post
When a show comes along that pleases the eye, ear and funnybone as much as LYSISTRATA JONES, attention must be paid. It’s an infectiously clever and tuneful musical comedy.
THE TEASING, HIGH-ENERGY CHOREOGRAPHY SIZZLES!”
Roma Torre, NY1
“A musical with big energy that slam-dunks a mythic saga into
a current-day college basketball setting.
THE HIGH-IMPACT DANCE NUMBERS WILL MAKE YOUR
HEART RATE CLIMB JUST WATCHING!”
Joe Dziemianowicz, New York Daily News
Thom Geier, Entertainment Weekly
“THE HIT OF THE BROADWAY SEASON!
A wickedly funny out-and-out hoot with wild precision dancing and songs that never miss!”
Howard Shapiro, Philadelphia Inquirer
“THE BEST NEW MUSICAL ON BROADWAY!”
Marlow Stern, The Daily Beast
“LYSISTRATA JONES BRINGS A HEIGHTENED TOUCH OF
SUMMER SUN TO WHAT HAS BEEN AN EXCEPTIONALLY GRAY SEASON FOR MUSICALS.
Ben Brantley, The New York TImes
“A GIDDY, ENERGETIC ROMP!
Audiences will find it difficult to abstain from laughter!”
Steven Suskin, Variety
“THE ENERGY NEVER STOPS!
The cast is first-rate and will leave you breathless.”
David Richardson, WOR
“THIS ENERGETIC, GOOD-NATURED ROMP
BRIGHTENS UP BROADWAY!
Now nearly 2,500 years young, the battle-of-the-sexes comedy of Lysistrata and
her chums rarely ceases to seduce audiences.
The latest winning incarnation is LYSISTRATA JONES, a bright and bouncy new musical that has bounded into the Walter Kerr Theatre. The musical expertly delivers plenty of laughs, perky songs, sexy goings-on and a stage smoking with cute young hotties!
Lewis Flinn’s enjoyable tunes propel the action both on and off the basketball court, where Dan Knechtges’ vigorously athletic choreography especially shines.”
