Cicely Tyson made the whole show. She was excellent. It was a simple set, with a simple story yet so very moving with it's complexity of human emotions.

I went from the box office, to the snack bar, to my eat with such ease I couldn't believe it. Cicely Tyson was so worth this trip to the theater. Great performance.

Went to see Bountiful on 9/4; everything went smoothly, and the seats were really great. The show starts a bit slow for my taste, but picks up after a while. The acting was superb and a good time was had by both of us.

Cicely Tyson gave a brilliant and energetic performance. She was in every scene and held the audience in the palm of her hand. There was even a bit of audience participation when Tyson, as matriarch Carrie Watts, inspired the audience to "sing...continued

This was one of the best Broadway shows I've ever seen. Cicely Tyson was on stage for most of the show (over two hours) and aside from being a wonderful actress, you have to marvel at the work she does at her age (88!). The play was touching; I...continued

Wonderful play!!! This was a wonderfully written and acted tale of growing old and closure of the past. The theatre personnel are a little intense and overbearing in their duties and responsibilities. They should work for TSA.

I went to see the play, The Trip to Bountiful. It was an excellent production and a heart warming experience. The portrayal of Cicely Tyson as an elderly matriarch cutoff from the security of her past, held captive and dominated by family...continued

My only problem was the audio. I was in the last row of Orchestra and could barely hear. I thought it was my problem but realized at intermission that my daughter and others on the row could not hear as well. We reported this but it was raised...continued
