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."
