Review: Lysistrata


Last Sunday afternoon I parked in the Sun garage and took the escalator up to the fourth floor of the Circle Centre Mall to see “Lysistrata,” written by Aristophanes and adapted by David Orr and director Bonnie Mill. This was the first production of the new, professional, Sapphire Theatre Company. You may remember that I wrote about their “Women’s Meet and Greet” event a few weeks ago. (Here’s a link to that post: http://www.indytheatrehabit.com/2008/10/20/womens-meet-and-greet-with-the-sapphire-theatre-company/)

I enjoyed this production for the reasons that I enjoy a good beach read: it is fluffy and it includes a lot of sexy people thinking almost constantly about sex.

(By the way, this show is rated by the theatre “A” for Adult content. Just so you know, if I gave age ratings for my reviews, I would rate the following comments as “A” for Adult, too.)

And hah! I sort of figured out how to add images to my blog posts here on IndyMojo. If anyone on IndyMojo.com is willing to help me figure out how to emb3d links (is there a button somewhere?) or even better, how to do a direct feed of my main blog to my IndyMojo blog, please let me know.
