Following a critically acclaimed fall 2011 world premiere at the Vineyard Theatre, The Lyons will begin Broadway previews April 5 prior to an April 23 opening at the Cort Theatre. Mark Brokaw (Cry-Baby, Reckless) again directs.
Lavin (Broadway Bound) and Latessa (Hairspray) reunite with fellow members of the original Off-Broadway company, including Michael Esper (Assistance) and Kate Jennings Grant (Proof) as their dysfunctional adult children; and Brenda Pressley as a nurse and Gregory Wooddell as a real estate agent.
The Vineyard Theatre production of The Lyons will be presented on Broadway by producer Kathleen K. Johnson.
Here's how the play is billed: "The Lyons is a funny and edgy work starring Linda Lavin as Rita Lyons, the indomitable matriarch of a family at a major crossroads: her husband is dying, her son's in a dubious relationship, her daughter's struggling to stay sober and on top of it all, she can't settle on a new design for the living room."
The original design team for The Lyons returns: scenic design by Allen Moyer; lighting design by David Lander; costume design by Michael Krass; and original music and sound design by David Van Tieghem.
