For Purlie Victorious Star Kara Young, Every Show Feels Like the First

Table 17 concerns Jada and Dallas, who haven’t spoken or seen each other since calling off their engagement two years ago—until tonight. Who’s moved on? Who’s still holding on?

Actor-playwright Lyons has appeared on Broadway in The Book of Mormon, Beautiful, and the Tony-winning revival of Parade. As a writer, he earned a GLAAD nomination for his Broadway playwriting debut, Chicken & Biscuits.
