Written by Ernest Thompson (who won an Academy Award for adapting his play into the screenplay for the hit film), On Golden Pond is directed by Leonard Foglia and plays at The Cort Theatre (138 West 48th Street).
This is the first major U.S. production of Thompson's play to feature African-American performers playing the family. According to director, Foglia, rewrites were made by the playwright, who drew on various versions of the text that have appeared over the years (but there are no specific references to black culture in the rewrite).
