Lincoln Center Theater Plans to Reopen Productions in Fall 2021

Based on current information regarding COVID-19 and concern for the well-being and safety of its artists, audiences, and staff, Lincoln Center Theater, which had hoped to reopen its productions of the new opera Intimate Apparel at the Mitzi E. Newhouse Theater and the new musical Flying Over Sunset at the Vivian Beaumont Theater this coming spring 2021, now hopes to reopen both productions in the fall of 2021. The two productions were forced to suspend performances this past March 12th when theaters were closed by Governor Andrew Cuomo as a precaution against the outbreak of the virus.

In addition to Intimate Apparel and Flying Over Sunset, LCT plans to produce additional productions in the Vivian Beaumont Theater and Mitzi E. Newhouse Theater in spring 2022, as well as LCT3 productions during the 2021-2022 season in the Claire Tow Theater.

The opera Intimate Apparel has music by Ricky Ian Gordon, a libretto by Lynn Nottage, based on her play, and direction by Bartlett Sher.  The musical Flying Over Sunset has a book and direction by James Lapine, music by Tom Kitt,  lyrics by Michael Korie, and features choreography by Michelle Dorrance.
