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."

There is a Metro station nearby, but parking on prem is $9 and worth it. The only poorly designed aspect is the Handicap parking as there is only one bank of elevators at the far end of the structure away from the Ahmanson, neccessitating anyone wheelchair bound to wheel themselves or be pushed across the parking structure and then all the way back across again once they are on the main level. Very poor planning on someone's part, if there was to be only one set of elevators, they should have been placed in the middle.The Trip to Bountiful info • Sep 26 2014 star this tip starred
