Few plays on Broadway today speak as urgently to our times as Mothers and Sons, the 20th Broadway production from legendary 4-time Tony® Award-winning playwright Terrence McNally. In the play, Katherine — portrayed by Tony®- and Emmy-winning Tyne Daly in perhaps her most formidable role — visits the former lover of her late son twenty years after his death, only to find him now married to another man and raising a small child. A funny, vibrant, and deeply moving look at one woman’s journey to acknowledge how society has evolved–and how she might, Mothers and Sons is certain to spark candid conversations about regret, acceptance, and the evolving definition of "family."
