Nicky Silver’s (Pterodactyls, Raised in Captivity) a delicious new Manhattan comedy The Lyons arrives on Broadway, after inducing riotous laughter and deep wells of emotion at the renowned Vineyard Theatre.
The Tony Award®-winning Linda Lavin (of the hit TV show Alice) stars as Rita Lyons, the indomitable matriarch of a dysfunctional family at a major crossroads. Her husband is dying, her son is in a dubious relationship, her daughter is barely holding it together. And worst of all, Rita can’t figure out how to redesign her living room!
Mark Brokaw (This is Our Youth) directs a pitch-perfect cast that also includes Michael Esper (American Idiot), Kate Jennings Grant (Guys and Dolls), Dick Latessa (a Tony® winner for Hairspray), Brenda Pressley (The American Plan) and Gregory Wooddell (Cymbeline).
Read our exclusive interview with Dick Latessa about how he makes dying funny in this sharp, pitch-black comedy.
