What happens to the family when a loved one dies and their partner moves on to start a new life? You'll need to be at the Golden Theatre to find out. Tickets are now on sale for the previously announced Broadway mounting of Terrence McNally’s newest play, Mothers and Sons, starring Tony winner Tyne Daly. Directed by Tony nominee Sheryl Kaller (Next Fall), the drama will begin performances on February 23.
The intimate cast features Daly (most recently seen on Broadway in Master Class), Tony nominee Bobby Steggert (most recently seen on Broadway in Big Fish) and Frederick Weller.
In Mothers and Sons, Weller plays Cal Porter and Steggert plays his younger husband, Will Ogden. The play tells the story of Katharine (Daly), who, 20 years after her son’s death, shows up at the door of his former lover, Cal. Cal and his family challenge Katharine to confront the truths of their shared past, as well as a future she never imagined. Mothers and Sons premiered at Bucks County Playhouse in June 2013, starring Daly, Steggert, Manoel Felciano and Grayson Taylor.
Opening night is set for March 24 at the Golden Theatre, so grab your mothers, your sons, heck your whole family (little ones excluded), and get ready for some serious drama.
