“The Intiman has taken this classic Anti-War story and amped it up to 11 making it resonate with modern sensibilities and given it a hard hitting ending that you won’t soon forget…Daniels and el-Gasseir have brilliantly reworked this ancient text and made it ring true for current events.”
“Just go with it, and accept that flaming female hotties garbed like Vegas showgirls are waging this battle of the sexes. They’re urged to join the crusade started by the firebrand Lysistra. Played with vigor and charisma by Shontina Vernon, Lysistrata has the right stuff to convert trash-talkin’, sexed-up babes to (temporary) abstinence.”
Directed by Sheila Daniels, By Aristophanes
Run Time: 85 minutes with no intermission
Make love, not war! Lysistrata is a woman on a mission, rallying the women of her community to put an end to a senseless war by denying their husbands their most basic desires. It’s the ultimate battle of the sexes! Directed by award-winner Sheila Daniels, Aristophanes’ audacious story of an anti-war sex strike is brimming with innuendo and bawdy fun that has soul stirring insights into the folly of war and the struggles between the sexes.
