Put down the Oreos. The Broadway drama Mothers and Sons has announced that it will close its doors on June 22. The play stars Tony and Emmy winner Tyne Daly, Bobby Steggert, Frederick Weller and Grayson Taylor. Directed by Sheryl Kaller, Mothers and Sons will have run for 33 preview performances and 104 regular performances at the time of closing. The show earned two Tony nominations: Best Play and Best Leading Actress in a Play for Daly, but did not take home either award.
Mothers and Sons tells the story of Katharine (Daly), who, 20 years after her son’s death, shows up at the door of his former lover, Cal (Weller), who is now married to a younger husband Will (Steggert). 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 New Hope, Pennsylvania in June 2013. A national tour is in the works.
