‘Mothers and Sons’ with Tyne Daly Locks Broadway Theater and Dates

Broadway’s spring lineup of plays continues to fall into place as Tyne Daly starrer “Mothers and Sons,” the latest outing to join a crowded slate, claims the Golden Theater for a run that starts in February.

“Mothers and Sons” is the newest work from scribe Terrence McNally (“Frankie and Johnny in the Claire de Lune,” “Ragtime,” “Love! Valour! Compassion!”), whose play “Master Class” was revived on Broadway by Manhattan Theater Club in a 2011 production that also toplined Daly.

In “Mothers and Sons,” the actress plays a woman who unexpectedly visits the former lover of her son, who died 20 years earlier. Sheryl Kaller (“Next Fall”) directs the Broadway incarnation of the play after initially helming Daly in the show at the Bucks County Playhouse in New Hope, Penn., where “Mothers and Sons” premiered in a short run over the summer.

Commercial Broadway outing is produced by a team that includes Tom Kirdahy, Paula Wagner & Debbie Bisno, Barbara Freitag & Loraine Alterman Boyle and Roy Furman. Full cast of the Rialto staging has yet to be set, although Manoel Felciano and Grayson Taylor starred in the Bucks County bow.

Starting previews Feb. 23 ahead of a March 24 opening, “Mothers and Sons” slides into the Broadway vacancy left at the Golden after the closing of John Grisham stage adaptation “A Time to Kill,” which shuttered there in November after a brief, sales-challenged run.

The McNally play joins a crowded roster of star-driven nonmusicals on Broadway this spring. Also on the upcoming calendar: Denzel Washington starrer “A Raisin in the Sun,” James Franco topliner “Of Mice and Men” and Debra Messing outing “Outside Mullingar.”
