PHOTO CALL: The Cast of Lysistrata Jones Gets Coached by NBA Hall of Famer Chris Mullin

News   PHOTO CALL: The Cast of Lysistrata Jones Gets Coached by NBA Hall of Famer Chris Mullin The Broadway cast of Lysistrata Jones took to the court at Sports Club LA in New York on Oct. 12 for a coaching session with NBA Hall of Famer Chris Mullin.

A member of the Golden State Warriors for the majority of his career, Brooklyn native Mullin is a 5-time NBA All-Star and was a member of the 1992 Olympic Dream Team.

Here's how producers bill Lysistrata Jones: "The Athens University basketball team hasn’t won a game in 30 years. But when spunky transfer student Lysistrata Jones (Patti Murrin) dares the squad's fed-up girlfriends to stop 'giving it up' to their boyfriends until they win a game, their legendary losing streak could be coming to an end. In this boisterous new musical comedy, Lyssie J. and her girl-power posse give Aristophanes' classic comedy a sexy, modern twist and take student activism to a whole new level."

Here's a look at Chris Mullin and cast running drills on the court:


 

Written by Tony nominee Douglas Carter Beane and Lewis Flinn, and directed and choreographed by Tony nominee Dan Knechtges, Lysistrata Jones — reimagining the ancient Greek play Lysistrata, about a sex strike in wartime, now placing it in the realm of college basketball — will begin previews Nov. 12 and open Dec. 14.

The cast includes Patti Murin (Lysistrata Jones), Liz Mikel (Hetaira), Josh Segarra (Mick), Jason Tam (Xander), and Lindsay Nicole Chambers (Robin) with Alexander Aguilar (Uardo), Ato Blankson-Wood (Tyllus), Katie Boren (Lampito), Kat Nejat (Cleonice), LaQuet Sharnell (Mhyrinne), Teddy Toye (Harold) and Alex Wyse (Cinesius).
