Who won the tickets to Lysistrata Jones Off Broadway?

Ok, this week's giveaway has been my favorite to date, and it reminded me that I have the most creative commenters in the entire blogosphere.

When asked to come up with examples of site specific theater that you'd like to see, you came up with such winners as . . . 

  • Sweeney Todd in a barbershop.
  • The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas in a brothel. 
  • Xanadu at a roller rink.

Great, right?  

But the winner for me, hands down, was Randall David Cook's answer . . . 

  • The Wiz . . . in a men's bathroom. 

Congrats, David.  You win for your wiz!  Email me to grab your tickets!

The Sunday Giveaway: 2 Tickets to Lysistrata Jones Off Broadway

Every time I think today’s society is too obsessed with sex, I pick up my old copy of Lysistrata.   They say this Aristophanes classic was first performed in about 417 B.C., yet it can still make a man blush 2500 years later.

Douglas Carter Beane (Sister Act, Xanadu, The Little Dog Laughed) and Lewis Flinn recognized its relevancy and created a brand new musical based on the ancient plot of women who withhold sex to get what they want (to stop a war, or in this case, to get their college basketball team to actually win a game).

And get this, Lysistrata Jones, which is directed and choreographed by Dan Knechtges, isn’t performed in a theater.  It’s performed on an actual basketball court.  That’s right, people, we’re talking site-specific-sex-related theater.

Does the idea titilate you?

Well, you can go for free if you win this week’s giveaway!  (Confetti falls!)

This week, I’m giving away two tickets to see LJ courtesy of The Transport Group.

Here’s how you win:

I’m a fan of site-specific theater.  One of my first examples of it was Jonathan Larson’s JP Morgan Saves The Nation which was staged on the steps of a bank right next to The New York Stock Exchange in the mid-90s.  I’ve heard of Little Shops in Flower Shops, Beehives in Beauty Shops, and yes, of course, Godspell in churches.

So what site-specific theater would you do if there were no limitations whatsover.  Of Thee I Sing in the White House?  West Side Story on the West Side?  Les Miz on a barricade in the streets of Paris?

Tell me what show you’d do and where you’d do it by commenting below (email subscribers click here) and you are in!

Good luck!
