100 people combine to present Lysistrata in a former warehouse in Brooklyn

Performed at the UnderWater Theatre at Water Street Restaurant & Lounge, this is a site specific version of Aristophanes' classic comedy. Following worldwide readings of the play to protest the war, this 2,400 year old farce tells the story of the women of Greece, who refuse to have sex with the men until they call off their war. The atmosphere will be like an ancient Festival of Dionysus, with drinks and food being served throughout.

REVIEWS

"Edward Einhorn seems to have done his research. The performances are lewd without being prurient, and he has reined in his boisterous ensemble just enough. The production fully utilizes the entire space. The actors cavort, yell and sing. This is a loud and raucous show. And so it should be since Lysistrata is after all a comedy. The audience for this show? Anyone with an appreciation for sex, or drinking -- or even Sex and the City"
Curtain Up

"Overall, Lysistrata 100, is an enjoyable erotic production with strong acting (including a large chorus handling complex choreagraphy/blocking), a brilliant sound design/composition by William Niederkorn and sensational directing/writing by Edward Einhorn who has made the leap from his children's theater off-Broadway production of Fairy Tales of The Absurd, to the orgiastic rituals of ancient Greece, with unsettling ease. All in all a fun, risque, energetic, piece of theater with some of the most talented off-off Broadway people behind it."
Hi! Drama

"Directed by Edward Einhorn, Untitled Theater Company #61 did a fine job of evoking the agora [the Greek marketplace] and makes good use of the unusual space"
