The Lyons Summary

Don’t miss Tony Award®-winner Linda Lavin (beloved as Alice Hyatt on the hit TV show Alice) 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 this hilarious new comedy by Nicky Silver (Pterodactyls, Raised in Captivity). The pitch-perfect cast 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).
