Upcoming: Lysistrata in Park Slope
Somehow, it's fitting that Lysistrata is being staged in Park Slope by the Gallery Players. We got an email about it yesterday. It will be running from March 15-30. Here's a bit from the email:
The Gallery Players, Brooklyn’s premier Off-Off Broadway theater, is proud to present the classic and sexy Lysistrata by Aristophanes and in a new translation by Drue Robinson...a bawdy and audacious antiwar classic, [it] is filled to the brim with hilarious innuendo and exposes the shared humanity between two feuding peoples. The women of the warring factions wage a psychological battle of their own when they take over the Acropolis and withhold their sexual favors from the savage local men until such time as the insane conflict is ended...The Gallery Players is located at 199 14th St., between 4th and 5th Aves. in Park Slope, Brooklyn.
Lysistrata opens March 15 and runs through March 30, 2008 (12 performances only). Performances take place Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays at 8PM; Sundays at 3PM. Additionally, The Gallery Players is offering a Saturday matinee performance at 2PM on March 22nd and March 29th only. Tickets are $18 for Adults, $14 for Senior Citizens and children 12 and under.
