Synopsis: The Lyons is 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.

Broadway Reviews

NEW YORK TIMES REVIEW:

"Oh, they’re just awful people, those Lyons. They’re whiny, denigrating, vicious, self-centered, recriminatory — the sort of blood kin who can’t cling to one another without drawing blood. And they’re a family that you will really, really want to spend time with. Honestly. And not just for (you should excuse the expression) the pleasure of their company."

ASSOCIATED PRESS REVIEW:

"Pity Ben Lyons. He lies dying in a hospital bed and wants some peace and quiet in his final days — respect, mostly — but is surrounded by his feckless family."

THE FASTER TIMES REVIEW:

"Linda Lavin, twice divorced, thrice-married, five times Tony-nominated (one of which she won), nine years as the star of the sitcom Alice, is at age 74 performing her 16th role on Broadway in the first play by Nicky Silver to move to the Great White Way, although he has been writing plays for 32 years and getting them produced Off-Broadway for 19. But you cannot go by the numbers in “The Lyons,” Nicky Silver’s gift to Linda Lavin, and Linda Lavin’s gift to Nicky Silver."

HOLLYWOOD REPORTER REVIEW:

"Linda Lavin surprised theater pundits at the start of the season by turning down plum featured roles she had originated in not one but two productions transferring to Broadway, Other Desert Cities and Follies. Instead, she opted to do Nicky Silver’s corrosive comedy The Lyons at Off Broadway’s Vineyard Theatre. The tart yet unexpectedly compassionate slice of familial dysfunction has now moved uptown with its impeccable six-member ensemble intact, and Lavin’s exceptional performance as the brittle matriarch of this messed-up clan removes any doubt that she made the right choice."

AM NEW YORK REVIEW:

"Linda Lavin could have come to Broadway earlier this season in either "Other Desert Cities" (she was in the Off-Broadway cast) or "Follies" (she was in the Washington, D.C., cast)."
