Tickets are now on sale for this hilarious musical retelling of Aristophanes’s Lysistrata, one of history’s greatest theatrical offerings. Lizastrata takes on the establishment, storms the Acropolis, and holds the treasury hostage until the long-warring men of Athens and Sparta commit to declaring peace. Her strategy? All the women go on a sex strike. Set to a mash-up of Liza Minnelli’s greatest hits, the talented Troubie triple-threats perform song and dance for a deliciously irreverent romp. No sequin will be spared! That may be why the show contains sexual language, situations, and imagery that is not recommended for persons under the age of 15.

While we admit these productions are home-taped, if you will, by The Troubies, they are not for sale. However, some archived productions end up on their YouTube Channel. Take a look here.
