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.

I think I was expecting a lot more based on some of the reviews here. I also attend a lot of plays and have seen much better performances. Overall, the acting was OK and so was the comedy aspect. For me it was between a 2-3 star play. The 1st act dragged a bit (a 2- rating), with their sound effect being the (amusing) highight, but if I had been by myself, I would have probably left. The 2nd act was much better, both the acting and story line (a 3+ rating).

With his fortune on the line, Fogg and his valet use rail, steamer, and elephant to race through India, Asia, and America. Such challenges as a snooping detective, a possible human sacrifice, and a runaway train are met with Victorian virtue and a precision pocket watch. Nick Olcott (The Book Club Play) directs this wacky adventure.
