The pop musical inspired by the 411 B.C. comedy Lysistrata, by Aristophanes, has a book by Tony Award nominee Douglas Carter Beane (The Little Dog Laughed, Sister Act, As Bees in Honey Drown). Following a developmental run in Texas, the college-set Lysistrata Jones made its New York City premiere in spring 2011 at a downtown gymnasium before moving to Broadway. Dan Knechtges directed and choreographed.
The Broadway company of Lysistrata Jones — which played Broadway's Walter Kerr Theatre Nov. 12, 2011-Jan. 8, 2012, earning a rave from the New York Times — 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 (Myrrhine), Teddy Toye (Harold) and Alex Wyse (Cinesius).
