Tulsa's American Theatre Company Presents "Mothers and Sons"

Aired on Friday, May 13th.

On this installment of StudioTulsa, we learn about "Mothers and Sons," a play by Terrence McNally which originally opened on Broadway in 2014, and which opens tonight (Friday the 13th) at the Tulsa PAC's John H. Williams Theatre. It's a tragic yet often amusing depiction of an older woman from Dallas who pays an unexpected visit to the New York City apartment of her late son's partner, who is now married to another man. Generations (and personalities, and personal philosophies) collide as this woman revisits the past and begins to comprehend the life that her son might have led...had he lived. Our guests are Lisa Wilson, who stars in this production, and Norah Sweeney, who directs it.
