Cuba Gooding Jr. makes his Broadway debut in revival of ‘The Trip to Bountiful’

“I ran to direct this play,” director Michael Wilson shared. “I’m so thrilled the play now is going to be centered with an African American family. I used to live in Houston, and [there’s a section] called ‘Freedmen’s Town’ — which is the 4th ward. That town was founded in the aftermath of the Civil War Reconstruction and Jim Crow was very present. I think it’s going to add resonance to this play and yet another level of meaning. And to work with this company of actors? My goodness!”
