Best Actress Tony nominee Linda Lavin may appear mild-mannered in Nicky Silver’s acclaimed comedy The Lyons, but make no mistake, she is one ferocious beast! As Rita Lyons, Lavin casually discusses the time she bought a gun with intent to shoot her husband, sincerely asks if her grandson may be “a little bit retarded” and nags her son so much he makes up an imaginary boyfriend—all while managing to look completely fabulous! Check out the new poster for Broadway’s The Lyons in which Rita (Lavin) goes head to head with an actual lion. (We think the king of the beasts might lose!) And if you haven’t seen this hilarious new play at the Cort Theatre, be sure to get your tickets now.
