"Trust me when I say: This and every other moment of “Lysistrata” is definitely worth seeing." -Tony Farrell, Richmond Times Dispatch Read the whole review here "Director and adapter James Ricks has done a great job working with classic texts and bringing them to life in new and exciting ways." "I think it’s one of the best flat out comedies that I’ve experienced in a long time, and I’m already planning coming back to see it again. It’s a definite must see." -John Porter, WCVE Read the whole review here "The musical interludes directed by Amy Hruska add charming vocal texture. Andy Mudd's set is a simple but grand, attractive variation on classic Greek columns with marble flooring. Without calling attention to itself, Maja E. White's lighting beautifully emphasizes key moments. Cora Delbridge has designed luxe, lovely variations on classic gowns with interesting modern touches and an appealing muted palate." " Sparkling staging, witty dialogue and slightly naughty fun combine to create an enjoyable excursion to early Greece." -Jerry Williams, Richmond Magazine and Sifter Read the whole review here "The cast itself cannot be given enough credit - every one of them is in their element." "This cast moves this piece along so swiftly that I wish the show was longer; there is never a loitering moment." " ...this was an exciting piece with one of the most harmonious ensembles that Richmond has put together in more recent memory..." -Brent Deekens, BroadwayWorld.com Read the whole review here "Don't drink anything during this show to avoid snorting something out of your nose from laughing so hard. Really. It's that funny." -David Timberline "The ensemble cast, led by Grey Garrett as the titular character, is persuasive -- the whole cast is well placed and includes fine voices for occasional songs and chants. Ricks' opening, with the women dancing in a circle as Muses to take us back into that ancient past, brings all those old friezes and figures to life. You should go see the show while you can, but be ready for language and adult tableaux. One subject that comes out clear from this production is: making peace is hard." -Harry Kollatz_reviewsfield_5540f90d8d661video_videofield_5540f9208d662castCAST LYSISTRATA - Grey Garrett KLEONIKE - Maggie Bavolack MYRRHINE - Rachel Rose Gilmour LAMPITO - Addie Barnhart LEAD FEMALE CHORUS - Melissa Johnston Price LEAD MALE CHORUS - Michael Hawke* PEACE - Terrie Marie MAGISRATE - Jeff Clevenger KINESIAS - Adrian Grantz HERALD / MALE ENSEMBLE - CJ Bergin FEMALE ENSEMBLE - Katherine Wright, Amanda Durst MALE ENSEMBLE - Christian Rennie *Member of Actor's Equity Association, the union of professional actors and stage managers in the U.S.A PRODUCTION Director - James Ricks Music Director - Amy Hruska Production Manager - Emily Hicks Stage Manager - Nata Moriconi Choreographer - Dr. Gaynell Sherrod Costume Designer - Cora Delbridge Lighting Designer - Maja White Scenic Designer - Andy Mudd Scenic Builder - Jeff Clevenger Prop Design - Molly Brandt Sound Recording - Roger Price Assistant Stage Manager - Ran Johnson_castfield_5540f9398d663ticketing_descriptionTo purchase tickets over the phone, please call the Dominion Arts Center at 1.800.514.3849 Preview - September 21st; 8pm - All tickets $22* Opening - September 22nd; 8pm Adults - $32*            Seniors (65+) - $27*            Students (Must show ID) - $22* *Does not include convenience or handling fees_ticketing_descriptionfield_55438185c7fa7calendar_start2017-09-21_calendar_startfield_5552189e68eb0calendar_end2017-10-14_calendar_endfield_5552190a68eb1calendar_dates_0_date2017-09-21_calendar_dates_0_datefield_55661e8c2fb5dcalendar_dates_0_time20_calendar_dates_0_timefield_55661ebc2fb5ecalendar_dates_0_minutes_calendar_dates_0_minutesfield_55ca2ab8ec238calendar_dates_1_date2017-09-22_calendar_dates_1_datefield_55661e8c2fb5dcalendar_dates_1_time20_calendar_dates_1_timefield_55661ebc2fb5ecalendar_dates_1_minutes_calendar_dates_1_minutesfield_55ca2ab8ec238calendar_dates_2_date2017-09-23_calendar_dates_2_datefield_55661e8c2fb5dcalendar_dates_2_time20_calendar_dates_2_timefield_55661ebc2fb5ecalendar_dates_2_minutes_calendar_dates_2_minutesfield_55ca2ab8ec238calendar_dates_3_date2017-09-28_calendar_dates_3_datefield_55661e8c2fb5dcalendar_dates_3_time20_calendar_dates_3_timefield_55661ebc2fb5ecalendar_dates_3_minutes_calendar_dates_3_minutesfield_55ca2ab8ec238calendar_dates_4_date2017-09-29_calendar_dates_4_datefield_55661e8c2fb5dcalendar_dates_4_time20_calendar_dates_4_timefield_55661ebc2fb5ecalendar_dates_4_minutes_calendar_dates_4_minutesfield_55ca2ab8ec238calendar_dates_5_date2017-09-30_calendar_dates_5_datefield_55661e8c2fb5dcalendar_dates_5_time20_calendar_dates_5_timefield_55661ebc2fb5ecalendar_dates_5_minutes_calendar_dates_5_minutesfield_55ca2ab8ec238calendar_dates_6_date2017-10-01_calendar_dates_6_datefield_55661e8c2fb5dcalendar_dates_6_time14_calendar_dates_6_timefield_55661ebc2fb5ecalendar_dates_6_minutes_calendar_dates_6_minutesfield_55ca2ab8ec238calendar_dates_7_date2017-10-05_calendar_dates_7_datefield_55661e8c2fb5dcalendar_dates_7_time20_calendar_dates_7_timefield_55661ebc2fb5ecalendar_dates_7_minutes_calendar_dates_7_minutesfield_55ca2ab8ec238calendar_dates_8_date2017-10-06_calendar_dates_8_datefield_55661e8c2fb5dcalendar_dates_8_time20_calendar_dates_8_timefield_55661ebc2fb5ecalendar_dates_8_minutes_calendar_dates_8_minutesfield_55ca2ab8ec238calendar_dates_9_date2017-10-07_calendar_dates_9_datefield_55661e8c2fb5dcalendar_dates_9_time20_calendar_dates_9_timefield_55661ebc2fb5ecalendar_dates_9_minutes_calendar_dates_9_minutesfield_55ca2ab8ec238calendar_dates_10_date2017-10-08_calendar_dates_10_datefield_55661e8c2fb5dcalendar_dates_10_time14_calendar_dates_10_timefield_55661ebc2fb5ecalendar_dates_10_minutes_calendar_dates_10_minutesfield_55ca2ab8ec238calendar_dates_11_date2017-10-12_calendar_dates_11_datefield_55661e8c2fb5dcalendar_dates_11_time20_calendar_dates_11_timefield_55661ebc2fb5ecalendar_dates_11_minutes_calendar_dates_11_minutesfield_55ca2ab8ec238calendar_dates_12_date2017-10-13_calendar_dates_12_datefield_55661e8c2fb5dcalendar_dates_12_time20_calendar_dates_12_timefield_55661ebc2fb5ecalendar_dates_12_minutes_calendar_dates_12_minutesfield_55ca2ab8ec238calendar_dates14_calendar_datesfield_55661e722fb5clocation_copyWith more than 1,000 spaces within two blocks, there’s plenty of parking available at the Dominion Arts Center.
