"Lysistrata" also featured the one Broadway appearance of exotic dancer Nai Bonet of French-Vietnamese extraction. She later on starred in the camp classic "Nocturna" starring John Carradine as Dracula, Yvonne de Carlo as Jugulia Vein and the handsome and tragically short-lived Antony Hamilton. Basically, the granddaughter of Dracula goes to NYC and discovers disco and true love. Wonderful things happen.

"Lysistrata" has had an interesting series of revivals. A flop operetta version in 1925 starring Olga Baclanova with music by Reinhold Gliere. A successful 1930 revival with Violet Kemble-Cooper, Hope Emerson and Nydia Westman that ran for over 200 performances. An all-black revival in 1946 with music and dancing starring Etta Moten, Fredi Washington, Rex Ingram with a young Sidney Poitier in a small role of Probulos. Then a 1959 revival starring Nan Martin as Lysistrata and Donald Madden.
