Broadway's 'The Lyons': Linda Lavin roars

28 April 2012 10:45 AM, PDT | Pop2it | See recent Pop2it news »

In this taut play, a man is on his deathbed while his wife anticipates his demise. Their adult children have a vicious fight. The son gets beaten badly and the daughter falls off the wagon.

"The Lyons" is a comedy.

And an insightful, truly excellent one.

Linda Lavin ("Alice") is Rita, a savvy woman who leafs through "House Beautiful," looking for decorating tips and chatting to her husband. She reels off old stories about neighbors until he explodes. "What the f*** are you talking about?" Ben (Dick Latessa, Broadway's "Hairspray" TV's "The Good Wife") screams in his opening line.

Unflappable, Rita explains she must redo their tacky living room where the "chairs are the color of disgust and the carpet is matted down with resignation." 

When Ben says, "I'm dying, Rita," she responds, "I know, but try to be positive."

Playwright Nicky Silver delivers one perfect line after another. When »
