Playbill.com's feature series Their Favorite Things asks members of the theatre community to share the Broadway performances that most affected them as part of the audience.
This week we spotlight the choices of stage and screen star Vanessa Williams, who was most recently on Broadway in the acclaimed revival of The Trip to Bountiful and will be part of the sixth annual Living for Today concert Jan. 19 at 7 PM at Joe's Pub. Read about the lineup here.
Williams will also be seen in the upcoming Lifetime TV film version of Horton Foote's "Bountiful," which debuts Feb. 22 at 8 PM.
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
