No more jelly roll

Jubilee Theatre updates ages-old tactic of the sex strike in Lysistrata PLEASE!

It's also nice that Eastman didn't feel compelled to use this retelling of Aristophanes to belabor the audience with a message about modern-day feminism. The only message in the play regarding sexual politics is expressed in the lyrics, "Hey, hey, hey, it's still the same today." The real point of this production is for the audience to enjoy itself and have fun. If only more directors would begin at this logical but often overlooked square one.

Lysistrata PLEASE! runs through April 14 at the Jubilee Theatre. Call (817) 338-4411.
