Horton Foote's The Old Friends, directed by Michael Wilson runs now through October 6, 2013, in The Irene Diamond Stage at The Pershing Square Signature Center (480 West 42nd Street between 9th and 10th Avenues). On Sunday night, the cast got a visit from the company of Broadway's The Trip to Bountiful and you can check out exclusive photos of the whole gang backstage below!

The cast includes Tony Award-winner Betty Buckley (Sunset Boulevard, Cats) as Gertrude Hayhurst Sylvester Ratliff, Tony Award-nominee Veanne Cox (A Free Man of Color, La Cage aux Folles) as Julia Price, Adam LeFevre (Priscilla Queen of the Desert) as Albert Price, Tony Award-nominee HAllie Foote (The Orphans' Home Cycle, Dividing the Estate) as Sybil Borden, Sean Lyons (Gore Vidal's The Best Man) as Tom Underwood, Novella Nelson (It's Kind of a Funny Story, Purlie) as Hattie, Melle Powers ("Chappelle's Show") as Catherine, Cotter Smith (Next Fall) as Howard Ratliff and Tony Award-nominee Lois Smith (Heartless, The Trip to Bountiful) as Mamie Borden.

In this World Premiere play by Signature Legacy Playwright Horton Foote, matriarch Mamie Borden and the remaining members of two longtime Texas farming families await a visit from Mamie's son Hugo and his wife Sybil. When Sybil arrives with alarming news, old friends on opposing sides must confront the issues surrounding legacy, loyalty, and the meaning of happiness that have hounded them for generations. Helmed by Michael Wilson, director of Signature's acclaimed 2009 production of The Orphans' Home Cycle and the current critically acclaimed Broadway production of The Trip to Bountiful, The Old Friends is an absorbing and vital chapter in Foote's beloved, distinctly American body of work.
