norman is that you?
September 27 to October 13
A father, whose wife of 30 years has left him, comes to New York to seek solace from his son and discovers his son is gay. Norman, Is That You? is considered to be the very first play to have dealt openly and comedically with homosexuality. The new version, while just as funny as the original, is now more in keeping with the times and is sure to be just as beloved by audiences — if not more.
From a distance, the title characters of The Lyons are hilarious as they kick the ego out of one another. But look at them closer and you’re likely to find an intimate mirror of your own frightened self. This family portrait is trying to tell a funny, furious little tale of family with honesty and humanity.
