01.19.10 Get It On

Juan and I have season tickets to the new Wylie Theatre downtown. Tonight was the 2nd performance of the season, "Give it Up!". It was a pop musical based on the comedy of ancient Greece: Lysistrata, written in 411 BC by Aristophanes. It was modernized from the old comedic war story to a contemporary American college: Athens University-where the school's basketball team, the Spartans, hasn't won a game in years. The head cheerleader convinces the rest of the cheerleaders to "Just Say No" to the basketball team unitl they win. It was surprising funny and not at all what we expected.
