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.

Beard's life had to consist largely of creating, testing, and writing recipes, and yet this aspect of his life is almost totally ignored in the production. The acting is superb; the sets, lighting and special effects are also terrific. But Beard's life story ends abruptly in this production, without much narrative justification, and just as the going is getting good.
This show is recommended for those age 15 and older.
