What if Aristophanes was producing on Broadway and commenting on the Greek crisis as well as men’s apparent global Fear of Commitment? What if women completely took over for a while? What if they could replace Fear with Love?
Faux-Bia! The Musical is a new glamorous anti-war comedy featuring music from all over the world that picks up right after Aristophanes’ famous heroine ‘Lysistrata’ devises a brilliant plan to blackmail the men of Greece by withholding what men want the most from women… Fear is nothing but fake violence, a… FAUX-BIA!
The World Premier is on Sunday, December 2nd 2018 at 7pm at Carnegie Hall.
