Photo Flash: Horton Foote Meet & Greet - Signature Theatre's THE OLD FRIENDS Meets Broadway's THE TRIP TO BOUNTIFUL


Signature Theatre Company's THE OLD FRIENDS cast met the company Broadway's The Trip to Bountiful after a performance of Bountiful this past weekend. The meet and greet gave the two casts the opportunity to say hello and chat about what it's like to work on plays by the esteemed playwright Horton Foote. Check out a group photo below!

In the World Premiere play THE OLD FRIENDS 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 Tony nominated revival of The Trip to Bountiful, The Old Friends is an absorbing and vital chapter in Foote's beloved, distinctly American body of work.

THE OLD FRIENDS cast features: Betty Buckley: Gertrude Hayhurst Sylvester Ratliff; Veanne Cox: Julia Price; Adam LeFevre: as Albert Price; Hallie Foote: as Sibyl Borden; Sean Lyons: Tom Underwood ; Novella Nelson: Hattie; Melle Powers: Catherine; Cotter Smith: Howard Ratliffl and Lois Smith: Mamie Borden.

The critically acclaimed revival of Horton Foote's American masterpiece, The Trip to Bountiful, will now play through October 9, giving audiences just a few more chances to see the legendary Cicely Tyson in her Tony Award-winning performance of a lifetime. The Trip to Bountiful also stars Academy Award winner Cuba Gooding, Jr., Emmy and Tony Award nominee and recording star Vanessa Williams, Tony nominee Condola Rashad, and Tony Award nominee Tom Wopat.

The inspiring American classic, The Trip to Bountiful, tells the story of Carrie Watts, an elderly woman forced to live with her overprotective son and domineering daughter-in-law, who dreams of returning to her small hometown of Bountiful, TX one last time. Her journey becomes a heartbreaking but ultimately life-affirming and inspiring tale that examines the fragility of memory and celebrates the enduring power of hope and faith.
