Singer-actress Vanessa Williams is returning to her Broadway roots in the Horton Foote’s play, “The Trip to Bountiful.”  Williams will join legendary stage, television and film actress Cicely Tyson in the revival about acceptance and coming home.

RC reported a few weeks backs that Tyson, an Academy award-nominee, was returning to the Great White Way after nearly 30 years.

Also joining the cast are Academy award-winning actor Cuba Gooding, Jr. and Condola Rashad, the Tony Award-winning actress who recently appeared in Lifetime’s Steel Magnolias  and the daughter of veteran stage actress Phylicia Rashad.

The show will appear for just 14 weeks and previews begin March 31 at the Stephen Sondheim Theatre.

Opening night is set for April 23.
