March 8, 2013 – The Stephen Sondheim Theatre Box Office (124 W 43rd St) will open on Monday, March 11, 2013 at 10am for the upcoming Broadway revival of HORTON FOOTE’S beloved classic, THE TRIP TO BOUNTIFUL, starring CICELY TYSON, CUBA GOODING, JR, VANESSA WILLIAMS, CONDOLA RASHAD and TOM WOPAT.

Directed by MICHAEL WILSON, THE TRIP TO BOUNTIFUL will play a 14-week limited engagement, beginning previews on Saturday, March 30th at the Stephen Sondheim Theatre (124 W 43rd St).  Opening night is scheduled for Tuesday, April 23rd.  Tickets are available at the box office, www.Telecharge.com or by calling 212-239-6200.

The inspiring American classic, THE TRIP TO BOUNTIFUL, tells the story of Carrie Watts (Cicely Tyson), who is trapped in a cramped Houston apartment with her soft-spoken son (Cuba Gooding Jr) and out-spoken daughter-in-law (Vanessa Williams), dreaming of a return to her home in the small Gulf Coast town of Bountiful, where she grew up and raised her family. Fearing that she’s an imposition and chafing under her daughter-in-law’s watchful eye, she steals away with her latest pension check and heads home in the journey of a lifetime. The result is an unforgettable play about the idea of home and its power to sustain us.

Horton Foote’s THE TRIP TO BOUNTIFULpremiered as a teleplay on NBC in 1953, starring Lillian Gish as Carrie Watts.  The play had its Broadway premiere later that year with the same cast, which also included Eva Marie Saint.  The play was adapted by Mr. Foote into an acclaimed 1985 film starring Geraldine Page, for which she won the Academy Award.  In 2005, Signature Theatre produced the play Off-Broadway starring Lois Smith, for which she won Lortel, Obie, Outer Critics and Drama Desk Awards.

THE TRIP TO BOUNTIFUL’s award winning creative team has interpreted a number of plays and films by Horton Foote: Jeff Cowie (scenery), Van Broughton Ramsey (costumes), Rui Rita (lighting), and John Gromada (original music and sound design).
