IMPASSIONED…visual imagery and movement-based storytelling… This is not your great-great-great-great-great-grandfather’s ‘Lysistrata.’” — Philip Brandes, Los Angeles Times

Broadway World
BLUNT, AUDACIOUS AND OFTEN SHOCKING… The percussive moves of battle, sexual insatiability in every form, drunken revelry, and the birthing of female empowerment are each ritualized with a potency that demands attention… a potent message about the power that comes when the weak band together to take action, however unconventional.” — Ellen Dostal. Broadway World

Theatre Notes 
INSPIRED… calls to mind the fervent years of crisis in the 1960s, when protest was a serious, sometimes deadly confrontation with power… aggressive physical style of dance-based performance… [a] stellar ensemble” — Paul Myrvold, Theatre Notes
