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...)

Raven Theatre to Screen Lifetime's THE TRIP TO BOUNTIFUL with Cicely TysonRaven Theatre to Screen Lifetime's THE TRIP TO BOUNTIFUL with Cicely Tyson
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.

by Robert Barossi - Dec 1, 2014

We've all heard 'You can't go home again.' Or how about 'Home is where the heart is'? At this time of year, it's 'Home for the Holidays.' The idea of home, what and where it is, is a powerful theme throughout all types of artistic expression, from paintings to books to stage plays. It's a universal theme that anyone can understand and relate to. And it's at the center of 2nd Story Theatre's holiday season production of Horton Foote's The Trip to Bountiful. (more...)

BWW Reviews: Luminous Cicely Tyson Makes TRIP TO BOUNTIFULBWW Reviews: Luminous Cicely Tyson Makes TRIP TO BOUNTIFUL
by Don Grigware - Oct 3, 2014

In his timeless and invigorating script The Trip to Bountiful Horton Foote engages our attention with his keen appraisal that 'The world can't be bought'. Believing the best things in life are free - well, almost..., elderly Carrie Watts (Cicely Tyson), in her Tony-winning role, proves just how healing a return to one's roots, however brief, may be. This Broadway revival directed by Michael Wilson also stars Vanessa Williams from the original New York production and Blair Underwood replacing Cuba Gooding Jr. It's a stellar cast, achieving a truly beautiful representation of Foote's infreqeuntly seen work.
