BWW Review: Angelica Page Brilliantly Lives Out Her Mother's Life and Career in TURNING PAGEBWW Review: Angelica Page Brilliantly Lives Out Her Mother's Life and Career in TURNING PAGE
by Don Grigware - Jan 27, 2017

Angelica Page stands quietly stage left and watches a home movie of herself on a giant rear screen. She sees a seemingly innocent little girl running around and playing with her mother Geraldine Page. When the film is over, she steps forward ever so slowly into the spotlight and addresses the audience fearlessly, 'My mother is haunting me.' At that precise moment, we sense we are in good hands. The family talent assuredly has rubbed off on Angelica Page, and we are in for a brilliantly honed theatrical evening. (more...)

by Gianluca Russo - May 3, 2016

There are very few productions that move me to tears, the last being Roundabout Theatre Company's revival of Violet starring Sutton Foster, ironically also based on a woman's journey to happiness. And though I usually stay composed and proper, something about Capital Repertory Theatre's beautiful production of The Trip to Bountiful compelled me to join in on the show's emotional rollercoaster and ponder upon the current state of my own life.

BWW Review: CPCC Theatre Bests Broadway in Beautifully Steering THE TRIP TO BOUNTIFULBWW Review: CPCC Theatre Bests Broadway in Beautifully Steering THE TRIP TO BOUNTIFUL
by Perry Tannenbaum - Oct 2, 2015

THE TRIP TO BOUNTIFUL is a rather bland tale that challenges a director to perk up the drama, which threatens to vanish once we must pull away from the close-ups on its elderly protagonist, Carrie Watts, that TV and movies so readily provide. In the current CPCC Theatre production at Pease Auditorium, Charles LaBorde has a more satisfying way with the script than Michael Wilson did in the recent Broadway revival. (more...)

by BWW News Desk - Feb 4, 2015

Raven Theatre Company, currently performing the Chicago Premiere of Horton Foote's Dividing the Estate, is presenting a free screening of the new film version of The Trip to Bountiful, arguably Foote's best-known play. The film, which was produced by Lifetime Films and aired on Lifetime Television in 2014, reunited Cicely Tyson and Vanessa Williams in the lead roles they performed for the play's 2013 Broadway revival. That production and this film are significant in that African-Americans were cast in roles traditionally played by white actors throughout the piece's history as first a 1953 teleplay and stage play and the 1985 feature film as well as countless stage productions over the past 60 years.
