Flying Over Sunset starts performances at Lincoln Center Theater's Vivian Beaumont Theater on Nov. 11. Lincoln Center Theater presents a new musical Flying Over Sunset, featuring a book and direction by James Lapine, music by Tom Kitt, and lyrics by Michael Korie. Flying Over Sunset tickets are available on New York Theatre Guide now.
A Broadway dream team of creatives has been enlisted for this fascinating Flying Over Sunset musical, which imagines a fictional meeting of equally creative minds in the 1950s whilst under the influence of LSD. Those three minds belong to Hollywood icon Cary Grant, writer Aldous Huxley, and playwright, diplomat, and congresswoman, Clare Boothe Luce, who all individually testified to having used the hallucinogenic drug.
James Lapine has enjoyed tremendous previous success on Broadway with Tony Award wins for his work on Into the Woods, Passion, and Falsettos, alongside a Pulitzer Prize for Drama for Sunday in the Park with George. Tom Kitt, of course, won the hearts of Broadway fans after writing the Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-winning score for Next to Normal, and Michael Korie made an impactful Broadway debut as a Tony-nominated lyricist with the fan favorite, Grey Gardens.
And if this trio of creatives isn't enough to seal the deal, Lincoln Center Theater has cast a trio of triple threats that have each wowed and earned respective Tony Award nominations in recent years. The Flying Over Sunset Broadway cast Harry Hadden-Paton, Carmen Cusack and Tony Yazbeck.
Get ready for a mind-blowing production that is set to deliver a theatrical high and a dramatic trip that more than live up to the musical's subject matter.
