Tickets for the Broadway production of Mothers and Sons, the new play by four-time Tony Award-winning playwright Terrence McNally — which was seen in a recent world-premiere engagement at Bucks County Playhouse — go on sale Dec. 9. Performances will begin performances Feb. 23, 2014, at the John Golden Theatre, where McNally's Tony-winning Master Class premiered in 1995.

As previously announced, Tony and Emmy Award winner Tyne Daly (Gypsy, Rabbit Hole) will star in the production with direction by Tony Award nominee Sheryl Kaller (Next Fall). Daly and Kaller will repeat their work from the June Bucks County production.

Opening night on Broadway is set for March 24. 

Producers Tom Kirdahy, Paula Wagner and Debbie Bisno, Barbara Freitag and Loraine Alterman Boyle, and Roy Furman will announce additional casting at a later date.



Mothers and Sons had its world-premiere production at Bucks County Playhouse, under the producing direction of Jed Bernstein, June 13-23. Also in the production were Tony Award nominees Manoel Felciano (Sweeney Todd, Brooklyn) and Bobby Steggert (Ragtime, Giant, Big Fish).

The play, according to press notes, is "about a mother who pays a surprise visit to the New York apartment of her late son's ex-partner, who is now married to another man and has a young son. Challenged to face how society has changed around her—without her—she is finally able to see the rich life her son might have led. Strikingly timely and deeply compassionate, Mothers and Sons is about the evolving definition of family and the healing power of forgiveness."

Mothers and Sons will mark McNally's 20th Broadway production. His others include Bad Habits; The Ritz; The Rink; Kiss of the Spider Woman; Love! Valour! Compassion!; Master Class; Ragtime; The Full Monty; and Frankie and Johnny in the Clair de Lune.
