Flying Over Sunset brings Golden Age Hollywood on modern-day Broadway, and fans are going crazy – tickets for James Lapine’s show are sold-out at least a week ahead. Join Cary Grant, Clare Boothe Luce, and Aldous Huxley on their trip, and by a trip, I mean acid trip over the sunset.

The Vivian Beaumont Theater has a large seating capacity of 1,200 seats, divided into an Orchestra and a Lodge. It is a part of the Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts, being the venue’s largest facility, and the only Broadway-class theater that’s not located in the Theater District.
Flying Over Sunset follows a typical Broadway schedule. There are shows every day except Monday, with two shows on Wednesday and Saturday, single evening shows Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday, and a matinee on Sunday.
Wheelchair access to the Beaumont and Newhouse Theaters is available from the street-level entrance. It’s via a manned elevator located to the right of the large mural.

Flying Over Sunset on Broadway
Flying Over Sunset made its debut on Broadway on November 11, 2021. Previews ran until December 13, when the show officially opened.
This “ambitious and truly original” work takes the audience to 1950s Hollywood. It follows cultural icons Cary Grant, Clare Boothe Luce, and Aldous Huxley. They’re set to embark on a transformative LSD journey, deepening into the human soul’s various corners.
This is the bold premise of Flying Over Sunset, a new musical, written and directed by Pulitzer Prize and Tony Prize winner James Lapine. Carmen Cusack, Harry Hadden-Paton, and Tony Yazbeck lead the cast in this revelating story, starring as Cary Grant, Clare Boothe Luce, and Aldous Huxley. The show’s score is by Pulitzer, Emmy, and Tony winner Tom Kitt.
Fun, controversial, and, well…trippy – this makes Flying Over Sunset so popular, the very names of the three protagonists sell tickets. A fun fact is that this fascinating afternoon never actually happened. And all this makes it even more important to see it on stage!
