One of Broadway's most loved shows of 2013, The Trip to Bountiful, comes to the Ahmanson stage, starring Cicely Tyson, Vanessa Williams & Blair Underwood -- the same trio who starred in the TV film version of the show earlier this year. Tyson and Williams both headlined last year's Broadway production, which earned Tyson every major theatrical award, including the Tony. The Trip to Bountiful has a simple, relatable plot that's both heart-wrenching and inspiring: A spry widow living in a cramped apartment with her watchful son and daughter-in-law sneaks off on a secret journey to her beloved hometown of Bountiful. What starts as an ordinary trip becomes a life-changing journey. This hit Broadway production -- a revival of the original 1954 production -- inspired The Wall Street Journal's theater critic Terry Teachout to say, "I've never been more deeply moved by a theatrical production of any kind."

Big, full-out, live orchestra musical with absolutely delicious leading performers, a witty laugh-aloud book, and stylish production numbers in the best of old school style. I went with people from 22 to 91 and we all sat smiling through the whole show, and bought tickets to see it again the next weekend. Could not be better, an unqualified rave.

When the S.S. American heads out to sea, etiquette and convention head out the portholes as two unlikely pairs set off on the course to true love… proving that sometimes destiny needs a little help from a crew of singing sailors, an exotic disguise and some good old-fashioned blackmail.
Cole Porter’s roundup of nostalgic hits in the production include “You’re the Top,” “Friendship,” “I Get a Kick Out of You,” “It’s De-Lovely,” “Blow, Gabriel, Blow” and, of course “Anything Goes.” Anything Goes is getting rave reviews across America as it makes its way toward Los Angeles.
