“Lizastrata” at the Getty Villa

The Troubies are back!

Tickets are now on sale for Lizastrata, LIVE at the Getty Villa Outdoor Theater. A co-production between Troubadour Theater Company and the Getty Museum.

Each fall, this theatrical series features a classical tragedy or comedy staged in the Getty Villa’s dramatic Barbara and Lawrence Fleischman Theater, an outdoor venue modeled after ancient Greek and Roman theaters. 

In this hilarious, musical retelling of one of history’s greatest theatrical offerings, Lizastrata takes on the establishment, storms the Acropolis, and holds the treasury hostage until the long-warring men of Athens and Sparta commit to declaring peace. Her strategy? All the women go on a sex strike. Set to a mash-up of Liza Minnelli’s greatest hits, the talented Troubie triple-threats perform song and dance for a deliciously irreverent romp. No sequin will be spared!

Tickets are on sale NOW. Purchase tickets here, or call (310) 440-7300.
