Terrence McNally’s 20th Broadway show opened on March 24th at the Golden Theatre, 225 West 45th Street and even though it was a cold, cold night, the celebrities made their way on the Red Carpet (many of the gals coatless) to pose and say a few words. TheaterPizzazz spoke with Terrence McNally, Sheryl Kaller, F. Murray Abraham, Fran Drescher, Doris Roberts, Luanne de Lesseps, Marilu Henner, Christopher J. Hanke, Donna Murphy, Nathan Lane, Chita Rivera, Chris Sieber, Donna Lynne Champlin, John Cariani and more.
The play, directed by Sheryl Kaller, stars Tony® and Emmy® Award winner Tyne Daly, Obie and Drama Desk Award winner Frederick Weller, Tony® Award nominee Bobby Steggert and newcomer Grayson Taylor. Preview performances began on Sunday, February 23, 2014. Mothers and Sons is produced on Broadway by Tom Kirdahy, Roy Furman, Paula Wagner & Debbie Bisno, and Barbara Freitag & Loraine Alterman Boyle. .
Mothers and Sons is a timely and provocative new play that explores our evolving understanding of family in today’s world. At turns funny and powerful, Mothers and Sons follows a woman (Daly) who pays an unexpected visit to the New York apartment of her late son’s ex-partner (Weller), who is now married to another man (Steggert) and has a young son. Challenged to face how society has changed around her, generations collide as she revisits the past and discovers a new connection she never expected.
The design team for Mothers and Sons includes scenic design by John Lee Beatty, costume design by Jess Goldstein, lighting design by Jeff Croiter, and sound design by Nevin Steinberg.
