"Hilariously frank, clear-sighted, compassionate and forgiving…laughter that rises in close and regular waves…Sure, from a distance the title characters of THE LYONS…are hilarious as they kick the ego out of one another. But look at them close—no, closer—and you're likely to find an intimate mirror of your own frightened self…Welcome to Broadway at last, Mr. Silver. And might I add that that this cozy-but-nasty family portrait is just the right vehicle to bring you here?" —NY Times. "Silver's humor is mordant, dark and rich. He's a writer who knows all too well the unsaid hurt that can infect families." —Associated Press. "Black-comedy perfection." —Hollywood Reporter. "Silver's in top form…As comedy about death, THE LYONS isn't trying to make a case for freshness or formal innovation. It's simply trying 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." —NY Magazine. "Smart and funny and moving." —NY Observer.
