Lysistrata Jones Tickets

Lysistrata Jones is a very prized, ancient play that has survived through the times and is still being produced and staged on Broadway. It is much revered owing to the fact that it was written all those many years ago by the famous comic playwright of Athens, Aristophanes, whose works have been noted not only for their remarkably outstanding plots but also for the radically different comedy strategy that was introduced by the man. Today this classic hilarious production has been modernized and re-written to fit the mindset of a quintessential Twenty-first century theatre. The musical’s book has been written by Douglas Carter Beane, who is well known for his works in The Little Dog Laughed, with music and lyrics by musical genius Lewis Flynn, the composer who contributed wonderfully to the play The Divine Sister. The play has been beautifully choreographed and brilliantly directed by Dan Knechtges who has famously worked in The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee and has been nominated for the Tony Awards. With such multi talented minds collaborating on the originally Greek play, it is no surprise how the Lysistrata Jones tickets are all the theater hype these days.
