The Death of Cupid premiered in 2009 at The Kansas City Fringe Festival, The Death of Cupid: A Whiskey Musical is a blues/folk retelling of Aristophanes' Lysistrata about the death of Fate and the birth of human divinity.

A bawdy, profane and athletic comedy that pays homage to the wit and wackiness of Aristophanes while laughingand screamingat the times in which we live. The Death of Cupid follows Lysistrata's collaboration with the women of the world to end the threat of war forever by means of a global sex strike. However, in this retelling, her actions not only upset their men, but also the gods, ultimately calling into question the relevance of their reign.

What's a Whiskey Musical? It's an event; a happening, soaked in good company, good music, good times andif you're old enoughgood whiskey.

The music was adapted from traditional songs in the public domain born out of oppression, protest, praise and celebration rearranged and rewritten to fuse the musical history of America with the theatrical legacy of the Greek classics, in order to inspire a sensual and shared ownership in all who hear it.

This production features quite a bit of adult content, language, violence and sexual behavior that is not suitable for persons under sixteen.

So pour your whiskey and tap your feet, 'cause Cupid's comin' back, y'all.
