"Mothers and Sons" finds its Broadway home
The play “Mothers and Sons,” which had its world premiere production at Bucks County Playhouse on June 13, will play Broadway's John Golden Theatre, 252 W. 45th St.
Preview performances have been set to begin Sunday, Feb. 23, and the opening night has been announced for Monday, March 24.
The new play by four-time Tony Award®-winning playwright Terrence McNally, explores the truths of who we are and who we love.
Tony and Emmy Award®-winner Tyne Daly stars in “Mothers and Sons,” a play about a mother who pays a surprise visit to the New York apartment of her late son’s ex-partner, who is now married to another man and has a young son. Challenged to face how society has changed around her—without her—she is finally able to see the rich life her son might have led. The play is about the evolving definition of family and the healing power of forgiveness.
Obie and Drama Desk Award winner Frederick Weller and Tony® Award nominee Bobby Steggert will join Daly in the production. Weller will portray Cal Porter opposite Daly’s Katharine Gerard. Steggert, currently seen on Broadway in "Big Fish," reprises the role of Will Ogden, which he created in an earlier production of the play at Bucks County Playhouse.
Tony nominee Sheryl Kaller (“Next Fall") directs. Producers are Tom Kirdahy, Paula Wagner and Debbie Bisno, Barbara Freitag and Loraine Alterman Boyle, and Roy Furman. Additional casting will be announced shortly.
