Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

2 aspects:

1) The Parthenon temple was dedicated to Athena, patron Goddess of Athens

2) The Acropolis changed purposes many times, from housing palaces to providing shelter in times of war.

They represent the architectural and historical religious beliefs of some of Western Civilization's oldest civilizations.

One of the most fascinating aspects of the theatre space is its continued usage well into modern day.

Modern audiences would probably perceive Lysistrata to be the first truly radical feminist play, where women dominate the patriarchal society and demand change. To that end, the Wall Street Journal reported that women in Barbacoas, Colombia, withheld sex in a similar manner to force the government to act in a similar way.

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
