    Nicky Silver's savagely funny "The Lyons" roars onto Broadway after a run at the Vineyard Theatre; Linda Lavin gives a master class in comic timing.

    Director Matthew Warchus turns the touching 1990 film “Ghost” into a showbiz musical extravaganza with a loud pop score from Dave Stewart and Glen Ballard.
