REVIEWS

Sure, from a distance the title characters of The Lyons...are hilarious as they kick the ego out of one another. But look at them close—no, closer—and you’re likely to find an intimate mirror of your own frightened self...Directed with a pulsing comic rhythm by Mark Brokaw, [The Lyons] draws laughs with the same reliability as, say, The Odd Couple. But with The Lyons. there’s often a gasp within the chuckle...The Silver matriarch has never been as fully embodied as she is by Ms. Lavin...The production is tighter, funnier and sadder than it was when I saw it downtown at the Vineyard Theater last fall.

The script has been trimmed somewhat, and the performances and staging have been pitched slightly broader to accommodate the larger house after a successful run at the Vineyard Theatre, but this merciless comedy of a dysfunctional family dealing with mortality and regret is still an intimate and scary examination of how we cope with loneliness and disappointment. Linda Lavin continues to give a master class in comic timing...Director Mark Brokaw balances the guffaws of merriment with the gasps of sympathy, knowing just when to extend a comic piece of business and when to cut it short.
