The ultimate (musical) battle of the sexes

Athens University is in the midst of a thirty-year losing streak, so Lyssie J. and her girl-power posse won’t “give it up” to their basketball-playing boyfriends until they win a game. The hilarious dialogue and upbeat score from five-time Tony nominated playwright Douglas Carter Beane and Lewis Flinn is an electric combination of Mean Girls, Glee and Pitch Perfect.

“an endearingly upbeat, surprisingly thought-provoking musical that winningly elevates the battle of the sexes” Broadway World

“The ancient Greeks liked bawdy innuendo, and this play capitalizes on that” Arts in LA

“Director Hayter.. once again proves herself one of Southern California’s finest, most creative talents” StageSceneLA

“Beane’s book received a Tony nomination and rightly so”
Stage Happenings

“One funny show. It’s worth the trip north to see it.”
