News   Broadway Cast of Lysistrata Jones Set to Reunite at Feinstein's/54 Below
 
Much of the original cast and creative team of the Broadway musical Lysistrata Jones will reunite at Feinstein’s/54 Below Dec. 6 for two concert presentations of the show. The musical is a modern retelling of the Greek comedy Lysistrata, told by a hapless college basketball team and its cheerleaders.

Set to reprise their Broadway roles at the supper club are Ato Blankson-Wood, Katie Boren, Lindsay Nicole Chambers, LaVon Fisher-Wilson, Patti Murin, Kat Nejat, Josh Segarra, Libby Servais, LaQuet Sharnell, Charlie Sutton, Jason Tam, Teddy Toye and Jared Zirilli.

The 7 PM and 9:30 PM concerts will feature direction by original director Dan Knechtges; music direction by original conductor Brad Simmons; and will include members of the original Broadway band, Freddy Hall, Alan Stevens Hewitt, Biti Strauhn and Marques Walls. The evening is produced by Shoshana Feinstein.

Lysistrata Jones features a score by Lewis Flinn and a Tony-nominated book by Douglas Carter Beane. Following a successful Off-Broadway run, the show opened on Broadway Dec. 14, 2011, and played through Jan. 8, 2012.
