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."

The play was structured much like the recent movie, and surprisingly, the movie played better. I usually prefer live theater, but in this case, the movie had more impact and immediacy, and Stacey Keach's Nixon was not nearly as compelling.
In this fast-paced Tony Award-nominated new play, British talk show host David Frost interviews former President Richard Nixon about the Watergate scandal. Written by Peter Morgan, screenwriter of The Last King of Scotland, Frost/Nixon dramatizes how Frost was able to elicit the apology that the rest of the world was waiting to hear from the former president.
