A happy-creepy reminder that Mr. McDonagh can still work his double-edged, sinister magic on a stage, making breathless, alarmed, and deeply satisfied dupes of us all.

Yes, it really is that good. A show about young rebels grabbing and shaping the future of an unformed country, "Hamilton" is making its own resonant history by changing the language of musicals.

Inducing riotous laughter and deep wells of emotion.

Why See The Lyons?

When the dying 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.

Be there this spring when Nicky Silver's deliciously savage new Manhattan comedy The Lyons arrives on Broadway, after inducing riotous laughter and deep wells of emotion at the renowned Vineyard Theatre this fall.

The incomparable Linda Lavin (the Tony Award®-winning star of Broadway Bound and five-time Tony nominee of smashes like The Tale of the Allergist's Wife) stars as Rita Lyons, the indomitable matriarch of a dysfunctional family at a major crossroads. Her husband's dying, her son's in a dubious relationship, her daughter's barely holding it together. And worst of all, Rita can't figure out how to redesign her living room!
