The Lyons
Ron Miller, Laura Starnik and Scott K. Davis -- in tech rehearsal for The Lyons

Playing Feb. 4 - 14, 2016
In describing this dark comedy about death, New York magazine put it best: " The Lyons isn't trying to make a case for freshness or formal innovation. It's simply trying to tell a funny, furious little tale of family annihilation with honesty, savagery, and humanity, a story about how we all, ultimately, pick out our own urns. It succeeds marvelously."


Feb. 25 - March 6, 2016
