Greek Theatre Festival: Lysistrata and Oedipus Rex
Lysistrata is a play about big ideasand thick, too, asks Calonice? Certainly, dear, but well go without for a while in this classic of all classics in which the male desires to fuck, marry and kill are starved to more easily-controllable proportions at the hands of Lysistrata and several generations of stalwart Greek women who are tired of war and waiting for their men to come home. Its a hard way to go (I will have naught to do whether with lover or husbandalbeit he come to me with an erectionOh! Lysistrata, I cannot bear it! protests Calonice) but theres a happy ending, even if they cant stage the really happy part. Shown with Oedipus Rex, the mother-loving story and basis for Alfred Hitchcocks Psycho.
Fridays, Saturdays, 8 a.m.; Sundays, 7 p.m. Starts: Feb. 12. Continues through March 7, 2010
