Cicely Tyson, Vanessa Williams, & Cuba Gooding Jr. Headed to Broadway in the Trip To Bountiful

It’s going to be another great year for black actors on Broadway and audience members alike. Cicely Tyson (The Corn Is Green, Trumpets Of The Lord) returns to the Broadway stage after 30 years, Tony-nominated Vanessa Williams (Into The Woods, Kiss Of A Spiderwoman) gets her Broadway fix again, and Cuba Gooding Jr makes his Broadway debut. If that wasn’t enough, through in favorite Condola Rashad who proves time and time again that she is more than just her mother’s child. The Trip To Bountiful by Horton Foote is going to be something you don’t want to miss. A television play turned movie, this is the first all black cast of this production. This is history creating itself. We can’t wait to see it.

“THE TRIP TO BOUNTIFUL follows Carrie Watts (Tyson), a active, highly motivated widow living in a cramped apartment in Houston in the Spring of 1953 with her son (Cuba Gooding Jr.) and daughter-in-law (Vanessa Williams) . Carrie escapes her relatives’ watchful eyes to realize her dearest dream: to return to her beloved hometown, Bountiful. What starts as an ordinary trip soon becomes an inspiring and life-changing journey of discovery.

THE TRIP TO BOUNTIFUL is Horton Foote’s masterpiece about memory, mortality and the undeniable, universal yearning for home.
