‘Lysistrata Unbound’: an Greek sit-down sex that is ancient attack

LOS ANGELES—“Updated” and “re-imagined” variations of classics often misfire but such as the change of Romeo and Juliet into West Side tale, Eduardo Machado’s reworking of Aristophanes’s Lysistrata is just one of the most useful.

The large cast wears duration costumes created by Denise Blasor and Josh Los Angeles Cour.
