What good is sitting alone in your room? Come hear the ocean spray. “Cause life is a Troubie show old chum, just head down P.C.H…”
Aristophanes’ ‘tent-pole franchise’, Lysastrata is being mounted by the makers of musical mischief, the Troubadour Theater Company. The Troubies full-frontal-assault of the ancient comedy takes place at a location famous for more nudes than the French Riviera, the Getty Villa. But in this steamy story, it’s titular character has been mated with the music of Ms. Minnelli in the Troubies’ LIZASTRATA.
When Greece’s war with Sparta drags on for another year, one Athenian lady has had enough. Aristophanes’ Lysastrata features its titillating titular character fighting to end the fighting by ending sex. Rallying the women from all sides of the conflict, she gives the men her ultimatum: Make war or make whoopee.
Performances begin September 2021.

Employing the theories of Shakespeare, Brecht, and Commedia delle Arte, the company strives to entertain always, educate sometimes, and take itself too seriously never.
