The Faux-Real Theatre Company’s ‘Lysistrata’

October 20, 2015 @ 6:45 pm - 8:00 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)
Every day until October 22, 2015

65-atjmboOnly three more days left to catch The Faux-Real Theatre Company’s raucous, rigorous version of Aristophanes’ comedy Lysistrata. It may be in poetry slam form, but Faux-Real brings the ancient battle of the sexes to life in much the same way the Greeks did it in 411 BC: with live music, a chorus, “bold theatrics,” and “colorful masks and oversized phalluses,” according to the website for the Nuyorican Poets Café. Wine will flow freely when the much-heralded venue is turned into an ancient marketplace “where Aristophanes’ bawdy classic will delight Athenians and New Yorkers alike.”
Tickets $18; $15 for students with ID and seniors (at the door only).
