Bernadette Peters and Tovah Feldshuh attended the Feb. 27 performance of Terrence McNally's Mothers and Sons, the new drama by four-time Tony Award-winning playwright Terrence McNally that stars Tony winner Tyne Daly as a mother paying a surprise visit to her late son's ex-partner.

In Mothers and Sons, Obie and Drama Desk Award winner Frederick Weller (Glengarry Glen Ross, Take Me Out) plays Cal Porter opposite Daly's Katharine Gerard. Tony Award nominee Bobby Steggert, recently seen on Broadway in Big Fish, reprises the role of Will Ogden, which he created in the world-premiere engagement at Bucks County Playhouse. Grayson Taylor plays Bud Ogden-Porter.

Directed by Tony Award nominee Sheryl Kaller (Next Fall), opening night on Broadway is set for March 24. Daly and Kaller also repeat their work from the June 2013 Bucks County production.

Mothers and Sons had its world-premiere production at Bucks County Playhouse, under the producing direction of Jed Bernstein, June 13-23, 2013. The Broadway incarnation is produced by Tom Kirdahy, Roy Furman, Paula Wagner and Debbie Bisno, and Barbara Freitag and Loraine Alterman Boyle.



The play, according to press notes, "is a timely and provocative new play that explores our evolving understanding of family in today's world. At turns funny and powerful, Mothers and Sons follows a woman (Daly) who pays an unexpected visit to the New York apartment of her late son's ex-partner (Weller), who is now married to another man (Steggert) and has a young son. Challenged to face how society has changed around her, generations collide as she revisits the past and discovers a new connection she never expected."

Mothers and Sons marks 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.

The design team for Mothers and Sons includes scenic designer John Lee Beatty, costume designer Jess Goldstein, lighting designer Jeff Croiter and sound designer Nevin Steinberg.

The John Golden Theatre is located at 252 W 45th Street. For more information, visit MothersAndSonsBroadway.com.
