Tickets and Information
WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Jeffrey Finn Productions with Stuart Thompson Productions present two-time Tony Award winner and Academy Award nominee James Earl Jones (Fences, The Great White Hope) in his eagerly-awaited return to the Broadway stage, starring opposite Tony Award winner Leslie Uggams (Hallelujah, Baby!, King Hedley II) in a new production of Academy Award-winning Ernest Thompson's beloved play On Golden Pond. Directed by Leonard Foglia (Master Class), this acclaimed new production premiered this Fall at The Kennedy Center in Washington D.C. In the play, retired New England professor Norman Thayer and his spirited wife Ethel decide to spend one final summer at their family's lakeside cottage in Maine. En route to a European honeymoon, the couple's estranged daughter Chelsea arrives to leave behind her fiancé's troubled young son. Colliding generations soon forge common ground, but when Chelsea returns to discover Norman playing the father she never had, years of bitter memories and resentment rise to the surface. An intimate family drama laced with humor and heart, On Golden Pond explores growing up, growing old and growing closer. Please note: Due to illness, James Earl Jones is no longer performing, and the role of Norman Thayer is played by his standby, Charles Turner.
