Called "a funny, furious tale" by New York Magazine, The Lyons follows an amusing, dysfunctional family at the hospital bedside of the patriarch, Ben Lyons, who's dying from cancer. His wife and two adult children gather for an atypical goodbye. Ben, freed from social conventions because of his condition, lets his words fly unfiltered -- curses included. Rita, his partner in a 40-year-long loveless marriage, finds her mind drifting toward thoughts of the future -- and home redecoration. The couple's alcoholic daughter and gay son have their own issues and agendas. Written by Nicky Silver (Beautiful Child), The Lyons was nominated for a number of awards for its 2012 Broadway run.

Sorry, but I found this play very boring. I read the previous reviews and thinking it would be a great play to take my 10 year old son to, but that was also a mistake. The actors were speaking with an accent which made it hard to understand..all in all, I would rather spend my money on something with more action and left the "acting" to the actor's school.
Quotes & Highlights
- The original 1980 Broadway production of Amadeus ran for nearly three years and more than 1,100 performances and won five Tony Awards.
- The 1984 film adaptation won eight Oscars, including Best Picture.
When your hard-earned fame has been surpassed by a brilliantly gifted, potty-mouthed golden boy, what else can you do but smile to his face while secretly plotting his downfall? Peter Shaffer’s Amadeus, winner of seven Tony Awards ‑ including Best Play ‑ and the Oscar for Best Picture, depicts the flamboyant genius of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart as seen through the eyes of his desperately jealous contemporary, composer Antonio Salieri.
With Edward Gero (Nixon’s Nixon) as Antonio Salieri, Sasha Olinick (Around the World in 80 Days, The Talented Mr. Ripley) as Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Laura C. Harris (26 Miles) as Constanze Weber, and DC theatre favorite Floyd King as Emperor Joseph II. Mark Ramont, from Ford’s Theatre, directs a towering story of greed, obsession, and guilt set to the glorious music of revenge.
