Various Cuts from the recent "Tell Me On A Sunday" by Andrew Lloyd Webber, featuring Shelby Floyd.
Egads! returns to its "campy" roots for this slightly naughty and enormously fun romp. VERY loosely based on Aristophanes' classic Greek Comedy ("so sue us- it's public domain"), Lysistrata Jones is a modern day fable about a girl who decides it's time to live up to her full potential by convincing the ladies of her cheerleading squad to refuse sexual favors to their boyfriends on the Athens University Spartans' Basketball team until they win a game!
After a critically acclaimed off-Broadway run, the show later opened on Broadway. The show received a "thumbs up" from all five leading critics in NYC. Come see it during its Midwest premier filled with KC's youthful rising stars who will have the audience cheering along with them throughout this fast-paced show.
