    Home Is Where the Years Disappear

    Ben Brantley

    April 23, 2013: The title destination in Horton Foote’s “Trip to Bountiful,” which has been revived at the Stephen Sondheim Theater, is said to be a small, obscure town in Texas. But on the evidence of the performance of Cicely Tyson, who stars in the production that opened on Tuesday night under Michael Wilson’s slow-handed direction, Bountiful is a code name for the Fountain of Youth.

    Tyson sublime in 'The Trip to Bountiful'

    April 23, 2013: Move over, you adorable scamps in "Annie." Settle down, weird girls in "Matilda." Broadway has a new unlikely heroine, a frail widow who hums hymns and has a bad heart.

    The Trip To Bountiful

    Matt Windman

    April 23, 2013: Cicely Tyson delivers a fully animated, very spirited performance that makes the audience want to root for her to finally arrive home. The statuesque Vanessa Williams is also an ideal choice for the self-centered Jessie May.

    The Trip to Bountiful: Theater Review

    David Rooney

    April 23, 2013: But the production’s tone is inconsistent, too often sacrificing truthful poignancy in favor of jaunty humor and manufactured sentiment. Instead of a quiet elegy that can cut deep with its sense of reaching for a past that exists now only in the imagination, it has become a heartwarming dramedy (a word I hate) of a kind regularly found on basic cable.

    The Trip to Bountiful

    Melissa Rose Bernardo

    April 23, 2013: Following a 30-year Broadway absence, Tyson gives an awe-inspiring performance. She sings, she dances, she does everything but cartwheels. She's well matched by Vanessa Williams — wickedly funny as her bossy daughter-in-law — if not by Oscar winner Cuba Gooding Jr. (Jerry Maguire), who's out of his emotional depths as her broken-down son. Yet perhaps Tyson's best scene is with ex–Dukes of Hazzard star Tom Wopat. You'd think a burly, white small-town sheriff going nose to nose with a tiny black woman would be unsettling. But it's simply, quietly moving. B+
