Tickets are now on sale for the first Broadway revival of The Trip to Bountiful. The play, directed by Michael Wilson, stars Emmy winner Cicely Tyson, Oscar winner Cuba Gooding Jr. and Tony nominees Vanessa Williams, Condola Rashad and Tom Wopat. Performances begin at the Stephen Sondheim Theatre on March 30, with opening night set for April 23.
The emotional drama follows Carrie Watts (Tyson), an elderly woman as she dreams of returning to her hometown of Bountiful, Texas, despite the wishes of her overprotective son (Gooding) and domineering daughter-in-law (Williams). The Trip to Bountiful first opened on Broadway in 1953, earning a Tony Award for Best Featured Actress in a Play for star Jo Van Fleet.
The play was written by Horton Foote and will feature set design by Jeff Cowie, costume design by Van Broughton Ramsey, lighting design by Rui Rita and sound design by John Gromada.
