Horton Foote's heartfelt play "The Trip To Bountiful" debuted on Broadway 60 years ago starring Lillian Gish. Cicely Tyson takes the lead role in the revival; and in keeping with all the other great actresses who've stepped into the shoes of homesick Carrie Watts, Ms Tyson runs away with it - and I do mean run!

At age 79 (or is it 88), Cicely Tyson, last seen on Broadway 30 years ago, seems right at home on that big stage. Home is, of course, the operative word here, since the play is really all about its eternal pull on our lives and the desperate need for some people to return.
