Flying Over Sunset Tickets

Flying Over Sunset Broadway Tickets

See a mind-bending musical with Flying Over Sunset tickets. Flying Over Sunset is a musical inspired by the novel by James Lapine. The musical centers around a fictionalized encounter in which philosopher Aldous Huxley, politician Clare Boothe Luce and actor Cary Grant all discuss their experiences with the drug LSD. Lapine formed the idea for the piece after discovering that each of the three figures, despite their ideological differences, all used psychedelics.

The musical premiered off-Broadway in 2015. Original cast members include stars Boyd Gaines and Betsy Wolfe. The production’s unique subject matter and approach piqued the interest of theatre fans, and its early successes saw it slated for Broadway in 2020. The Broadway iteration stars Carmen Cusack, Harry Hadden-Paton and Tony Yazbeck as the trio of drug-using protagonists. Flying Over Sunset features music by veteran Tim Kitt and original choreography by Michelle Dorrance. Flying Over Sunset tickets give you a chance to see this far-out musical live.

The first half of the play is historical and tells the story of how each figure separately came to experiment with LSD in the ’50s and ’60s. The play’s second half offers a fictional vision of how Huxley, Luce and Grant might pontificate together under the influence of the drug. Far from a juvenile glorification of psychedelics, Flying Over Sunset explores the characters’ personal lives as they reach various psychological breakthroughs in their conversation together. Critics have hailed the musical as both whimsical and deeply moving, and laud the masterful way in which the writer characterizes the protagonists’ individual introspection.
