Tickets are now available for the Broadway transfer of Nicky Silver’s The Lyons. Directed by Mark Brokaw, the play stars Tony winners Linda Lavin and Dick Latessa and features Michael Esper, Kate Jennings Grant, Brenda Pressley and Gregory Wooddell. The Lyons will begin previews on April 5 at the Cort Theatre, with an official opening scheduled for April 23.
The Lyons is about a family grappling with the impending death of its patriarch (Latessa). When Ben Lyons’ wife, Rita (Lavin), and their grown children gather to say goodbye, they learn that despite being a family, each of them is utterly isolated. Afraid of closeness and afraid of solitude, they are propelled into foreign territory—human connection.
The show first opened at off-Broadway's Vineyard Theatre on October 11, 2011 and extended several times before closing on November 20.
