I absolutely cannot wait to see four-time Tony Award-winning playwright (and Hamptons resident) Terrence McNally’s newest drama, “Mothers and Sons.” The play, which stars Tony- and Emmy Award-winner Tyne Daly, opens for previews on February 23 at the Golden Theatre on Broadway.
The show also stars Frederick Weller, who’s best known for “In Plain Sight” but he’s a bona-fide Juilliard and Broadway guy with serious cred in LaBute and Mamet plays (Fun fact: he’s also the cousin of the original “Robocop,” Peter Weller.) and Tony nominee Bobby Steggert, who was in “Big Fish” and McNally’s “Ragtime” on Broadway and right here in Sag Harbor on the Bay Street Theatre stage in “Betty’s Summer Vacation.” Thanks for the reminder Tracy Mitchell!
I don’t know what I’m most excited about: seeing Tyne Daley (“Gyspy,” McNally’s “Master Class” and television’s “Cagney & Lacey”) perform live or getting more of a glimpse into the mind of the playwright who wrote “Frankie and Johnny in the Clair de Lune,” “Lips Together, Teeth Apart,” “Kiss of the Spider Woman,” “Love! Valour! Compassion!,” “Master Class” and “Ragtime.” Yowsa–what incredible talent!
The show officially opens on March 24. To learn more, visit http://www.mothersandsonsbroadway.com.
