2013 Tony Winner

Move over, you adorable scamps in "Annie." Settle down, weird girls in "Matilda." Broadway has a new unlikely heroine, a frail widow who hums hymns and has a bad heart!

Associated Press

Closed 9 Oct 2013

This star-studded, limited engagement production stars three-time Emmy Award Winner Cicely Tyson and Vanessa Williams! The Trip To Bountiful has been nominated for four 2013 Tony Awards including Best Revival of a Play and Best Performance by an Actress in a Leading Role in a Play for its star, Cicely Tyson.

Carrie Watts (Tyson), an elderly woman who dreams of returning to her small hometown of Bountiful, TX one last time, against the wishes of her overprotective son (Gooding) and domineering daughter-in-law (Williams).

Her journey becomes a heartbreaking but ultimately life-affirming and inspiring tale that examines the fragility of memory and celebrates the enduring power of hope and faith.
