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.

Fast-moving and funny, this production does a good job of hitting the high notes in Austen's novel, with all her best lines intact. Michael Brusasco is perhaps a bit more charming than one might expect from Mr. Darcy (haughty Colin Firth is a hard act to follow), but clever Kate Cook is pitch-perfect as Lizzie, and D.C. veterans Rick Foucheux and Catherine Flyte are hilarious as Mr. and Mrs. Bennet. We had excellent second-row seats, but all locations would be good in this intimate theater.
