On Golden Pond Story

Two-time Tony Award winner and Academy Award nominee James Earl Jones makes his long-awaited return to the Broadway stage, starring opposite Tony winner Leslie Uggams in a new production of Ernest Thompson's beloved On Golden Pond, a hit originally both on Broadway and on the big screen. In On Golden Pond, retired New England professor Norman Thayer and his spirited wife Ethel decide to spend one final summer at their family's lakeside cottage in Maine. En route to a European honeymoon, the couple's [IMG:L]estranged daughter Chelsea arrives to leave behind her fiance's troubled young son. Colliding generations soon forge common ground, but when Chelsea returns to discover Norman playing the father she never had, years of bitter memories and resentment rise to the surface. An intimate family drama laced with humor and heart, On Golden Pond explores growing up, growing old and growing closer.
