Behind The Scenes

Oprah, Tyler Perry, Angela Bassett, Lenny Kravitz & More Visit The Trip To Bountiful

The almighty and powerful Mama O hasn’t forgotten about Broadway and neither has some other big name stars. The new production of Horton Foote’s The Trip To Bountiful has seen it’s fair share of celebrities since opening night besides the ones that take the stage every night. Among those who have attended the show to see Cicely Tyson, Vanessa Williams, Cuba Gooding Jr., and Condola Rashad light up The Great White Way have been Gayle King, Liza Minnelli, Gabourey Sidibe, Lenny Kravitz, Star Jones, Angela Bassett, and Tyler Perry, who snuck in unnoticed on Opening Night. Take a look at the pictures below.

“For years I have been searching for the perfect project to bring me back to my true home — the stage. In many ways Broadway is my Bountiful and I’m eager and honored to return with this strong, passionate, and funny character in a timeless American classic.” – Cicely Tyson
