The Game Stops Here

The best-reviewed new show of the season, Lysistrata Jones, has posted a closing date of January 8th at the Walter Kerr Theatre. The show opened on December 14th and will have played 34 previews and 30 regular performances at the time of the closing.

Featuring music and lyrics by Lewis Flinn and a book by Tony nominee Douglas Carter Beane, Lysistrata Jones is loosely based on Aristophanes’ Lysistrata. The show centers on the Athens University basketball team, which hasn’t won a game in 30 years. When spunky transfer student Lysistrata Jones (Murin) encourages the squad’s fed-up girlfriends to stop “giving it up” to their boyfriends until they win a game, the basketball squad is forced to end their losing streak or risk seeing no action once they step foot off the court.
