Didn’t get a ticket to see Vanessa Williams perform in “The Trip to Bountiful” on Broadway last year? Tune into Lifetime next month to see the Chappaqua resident star in a television adaptation of the Tony-nominated play.
“The Trip to Bountiful,” set during the final years of the Jim Crow South, will be a part of Lifetime’s celebration of Black History Month. The film stars Cicely Tyson in the role of a woman on a quest to reconnect with her past. Vanessa plays her pretentious daughter-in-law.
The movie premieres February 22nd at 8:00pm ET/PT. Do you plan to tune in? Tell us in the comments!
