The production opened on April 23.
In addition to Tyson, Gooding and Williams, The Trip to Bountiful stars Tony nominee Condola Rashad and Tom Wopat.

The Trip to Bountiful tells the story of Carrie Watts (Tyson), an elderly woman who longs to see her hometown of Bountiful, Texas, one final time. Meanwhile, her overprotective son (Gooding Jr.) and domineering daughter-in-law (Williams) try to make her stay home.
