The humor in LYSISTRATA is the focus of this latest adaptation. Playwright Edward Einhorn, known for his comic absurdist plays, translates the ancient Greek humor into something equally amusing to a modern audience, without losing the flavor of the ancient text. Complete with essays, selected music, and a second version of the play for inventive directors, this newest adaptation of Aristophanes' philosophical comedy focuses on three elements of the human condition that have not changed in nearly 2500 years: war, sex, and, most of all, laughter.

"Edward Einhorn seems to have done his research. 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 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."

"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"
L Magazine

"Retaining the bawdy humor of the original, Lysistrata is undeniably a laugh-out-loud comedy of war, sex, and wicked fun. It is an excellent contribution to theater shelves."
