OVERVIEW

You’ll have a ball at the blissfully funny new musical that gives Aristophanes’ classic comedy a sexy, 21st century twist. Showcasing an ingenious mix of hilarity, heart and hoops, it’s the winningest show on Broadway!

Lyssie J. and her girl-power posse won’t “give it up” to their basketball playing boyfriends until they win a game—and ultimately find that abstinence truly does make the heart grow fonder!

With its infectious original score, genre-defying choreography and a hysterical book from three-time Tony®-nominated playwright Douglas Carter Beane (The Little Dog Laughed), composer and lyricist Lewis Flinn (The Divine Sister) and Tony®-nominated director and choreographer Dan Knechtges (The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee) it’s no surprise that downtown’s sold-out sensation is now Broadway’s feel-good must-see hit!

REVIEWS

PRODUCTION REVIEWS

“An effervescent, tasty and surprisingly filling new musical with high-octane performances.”

Ben Brantley, The New York Times

“A genuine delight! With such irresistible humor and infectious energy, you can’t help but leave on an endorphin high.”

Roma Torre, NY1

“Flat-out showbiz ebullience!”

Adam Green, Vogue

“A good old-fashioned tease of a musical comedy—a naughty, bubbly, modern goof on Aristophanes.”

Scott Brown, New York Magazine
