About this show

Jeffrey Finn Productions presents two-time Tony Award winner and Academy Award nominee James Earl Jones and Tony Award winner Leslie Uggams in a new production of Ernest Thompson's beloved play On Golden Pond. Leonard Foglia directs. 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 teenage 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.
