THE BEST REVIEWED NEW MUSICAL OF THE SEASON!

 

“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

“A WINNER!

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

“HILARIOUS!”

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.

This tale of a losing basketball team and the women who try to energize it is a well-aimed throwback to a genre seldom seen these days. Though it is hard to believe in the era of angst-steeped shows, there was a time when it was fun to be young in a Broadway musical. Dan Knechtges’s choreography makes spirited use of basketball moves, the kinetics of cheerleading and a blissful evocation of ancient signage. Lewis Flinn’s effervescent score makes reference to Motown, John Mayer-type ballads andGlee-like choral rousers. Patti Murin has a real star shine. Ditsy and engagingly earnest, her “Lysistrata” belongs to the gallery of sharp-minded, soft-looking young blondes created on screen by Alicia Silverstone in Clueless and Reese Witherspoon in Legally Blonde.

“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.”
