NEW CONTEST! Win Tickets to Broadway's LYSISTRATA JONES!

When I saw Lysistrata Jones off-Broadway last summer, I hoped that it would go on to a longer life.  I didn't dare dream that it would go all they way from the tiny Gym at Judson to Broadway, but I should have had faith!  Just like the sassy title character, this little show is going large and taking charge! 

And you could win tickets to see Lyssie J., her girls and the poor guys at Athens U. who aren't "getting any."  That's right!  Follow the contest all week right here at JK's TheatreScene, and send in your entry.  You could be one of two lucky winners of a pair tickets to see LYSISTRATA JONES ON BROADWAY!  (Don't like contests, but want to see the show for a special blogger rate?  Scroll to the bottom of this post for details and a discount code!)

Here is everything you need to know:

  • Starting TODAY ( and Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday) there will be a trivia question at the end of my blog for the day. Each multiple-choice question will be somehow related to the musical Lysistrata Jones.
  • Collect each answer, and submit all 5 to me via email at

Lysistrata Jones (Patti Murin, center) and the girls of Athens U.
