A critical and popular success, The Lyons stars Linda Lavin and Dick Latessa, under the direction of Mark Brokaw. This marks the last possible extension for this Off-Broadway engagement.

The Lyons opened Oct. 11. On that day The Vineyard announced an extension to Nov. 11. The production began previews on Sept. 22.

Silver's seventh new play to open at The Vineyard is billed this way by the not-for-profit company: "An outrageously funny and stirring work about a family grappling with the impending death of its patriarch. When Ben Lyons' wife, Rita, 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 cast also includes Kate Jennings Grant, Brenda Pressley, Michael Esper and Gregory Wooddell.

Performances are Tuesdays at 7 PM, Wednesdays through Saturdays at 8 PM and Saturdays and Sundays at 3 PM. Tickets are $70, with premium tickets available for $100, and can be purchased online at www.vineyardtheatre.org, or by calling the box office at (212) 353-0303.
