“The Lyons” by playwright Nicky Silver

BB The Lyons 8.5 x 11 Flyer-sOpening November 5, 2015 for 10 performances over three weekends at 57 Main Street, Northport, NY

Nicky Silver’s highly acclaimed 2011 black comedy, The Lyons, brings us into the lair of a family shrouded in secrets best left undiscovered.  But the patriarch’s looming death ignites confrontations that lay them bare and propel a “funny, furious little tale of family annihilation,” as New York Magazine described it.  The vicious shredding of any pretense leaves no choice but to make desperate attempts at new connections. Cast: Jeff Bennett, Aimee Berlin, Eric Clavell, Vicki Milach, Kayla Scudero, and Stephen Zuccaro. Directed by Lynn Antunovich, Associate Director Emily Ryan Reed, Producer Sherri Bennett.

D. B. SWEENEY, Actor, Feature Films, Broadway, Off-Broadway, Television “The real bonus with Jeff is his insight into the craft of acting. Bennett has clearly digested most of what’s in print on the subject and distilled it down to a startlingly clear system. ”

KARMINE ALERS , Broadway Actress from RENT and Aida “I truly enjoyed the productions I’ve viewed at The Bare Bones Theater. The actors and direction of the production were of Broadway caliber.  As an actor myself it was inspiring to see and made me want to work that much harder and better.  I would highly recommend anyone to attend.”
LEE MEYER, Actor “Jeff is that rare teacher and director who truly cares about all of his students and their growth as actors. He makes sure that everyone has their chance to shine, whether or not they’re destined to make it in the big time. ”

ALLYSA ADAMS, TV Reporter “Jeff Bennett is not a one trick teacher. There is never one answer to an acting problem in Bennett’s class. I still use the tools I learned in his classes in my job today. ”
