The Lyons star Linda Lavin, who recently earned her sixth Tony nomination, will perform solo concerts at the Metropolitan Room on May 6 and 7. Accompanied by musical director Billy Stritch and a jazz combo, Lavin will perform selections from her debut solo album Possibilities. The set will include songs like "It Might as well be Spring," "There's a Small Hotel," ""Corcovado" and "You've Got Possibilities."
In The Lyons, Lavin portrays Rita Lyons, a woman at a major crossroads: her husband is dying, her son is in a dubious relationship, her daughter is struggling to stay sober and on top of all that, Rita can't settle on a new design for the living room!
Lavin is best known for her years playing the title character on TV’s Alice. She won a Tony Award in 1987 for Broadway Bound. In addition to The Lyons, she has received Tony nominations for Last of the Red Hot Lovers, The Diary of Anne Frank, The Tale of the Allergist’s Wife and Collected Stories. Possibilities was released by Sh-K-Boom Records earlier this year.
