Four-time Tony Award-winning scribe Terrence McNally's new play Mothers and Sons, starring Tony and Emmy winner Tyne Daly, will play Broadway's John Golden Theatre. Directed by Tony nominee Sheryl Kaller (Next Fall), the previously announced drama will begin preview performances on February 23, 2014, with opening night set for March 24. Additional casting will be announced soon.
Mothers and Sons explores the essence of family and forgiveness in a rapidly changing society. Twenty years after her son's death, a mother turns up at the door of his former lover, who is now married to another man and has a young son. This man and his family challenge the woman to confront the truths of their shared past, and a future she never imagined. Values clash as they struggle to reconcile their vastly different worlds.
Mothers and Sons had its world premiere at Bucks County Playhouse on June 13 with a cast that included Manoel Felciano, Big Fish star Bobby Steggert and Grayson Taylor. McNally's other works for Broadway include Bad Habits, The Ritz, The Rink, Kiss of the Spider Woman, Love! Valour! Compassion!, Master Class, Ragtime, The Full Monty and Frankie and Johnny in the Clair de Lune.
