Broadway Revival Of The Trip To Bountiful Starring Cicely Tyson To Open On Broadway This Spring
That's right theatre fans. One of America's most beloved actresses is returning to the Great White Way for the first time in thirty years. Cicely Tyson, the Emmy winning and Academy Award nominated actress of stage and screen, will star in a new production of Horton Foote's The Trip To Bountiful at the Stephen Sondheim Theatre. This limited engagement is set to begin previews on March 31, 2013 with opening night scheduled for April 23,2013. Starring along side her are Academy Award winner Cuba Gooding Jr., Emmy nominee Vanessa Williams, and Tony nominee Condola Rashad. The show first premiered on NBC in 1953 as a television play. However it was the 1985 movie starring Geraldine Page that brought the play worldwide recognition. Ironically the Broadway version of the show would only run for a total of thirty-nine performances. Something tells me though that this new production will fare much better. Tickets for The Trip To Bountiful are expected to go on sale in the coming weeks so make sure to check back here for more information. Get your tickets to see The Trip To Bountiful on Broadway. I can't wait.
