The Lyons is the bleakest show you'll laugh your head off at.
I don't think that's a good English sentence. But that's about the size of it. I'll be writing more about the Circuit Playhouse production with Irene Crist and Ron Gephart. In the meantime, here's a video that doesn't really do it any justice.
After roles in Endgame and Sunset Limited, Gephart was primed for the part of a foulmouthed nobody dying badly while his wife picks out new furniture. Funny stuff if you can take it.
