Although Aristophanes wrote his Greek comedy Lysistrata 2,500 years ago, this classic tale of gender wars remains eerily relevant. Find out more about the University of Arkansas Department of Theatre's 21st Century update in my conversation with director Morgan Hicks. Hint: it involves pop, country, and rap hits. The UA Theatre department adaptation opens Friday, Feb. 17 with shows through Sunday, Feb. 26.
