The world premiere of Flying Over Sunset is scheduled to begin performances November 11 at the Vivian Beaumont Theater after delaying due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The Lincoln Center Theater production is set to officially open December 13.
Flying Over Sunset is inspired by the use of LSD in the late '50s by author Aldous Huxley, playwright and Congresswoman Clare Boothe Luce, and film star Cary Grant. On their trips, they grapple with the unknowns of their lives and the world.
