Mothers and SonsBobby Steggert, Frederick Weller, Grayson Taylor, and Tyne Daly (l. to r.) in Terrence McNally's Mothers and Sons.

Few plays on Broadway today speak as urgently to our times as the 20th Broadway production from legendary four-time past Tony Award-winning playwright Terrence McNally. A mother visits the former lover of her late son, only to find him married to another man and raising a small child. A funny, vibrant, and moving look at one woman's journey as she reflects on her life, how society has changed—and how she might, too. Mothers and Sons is a provocative and powerful new play, sparking candid conversations about connection, forgiveness - and the evolving definition of family.


Mothers and Sons had its world premiere production at Pennsylvania’s Bucks County Playhouse in June, 2013.


  • This is playwright McNally's 20th Broadway show.
  • Tyne Daly’s most recent Broadway appearance was in a 2011 revival of McNally’s play Master Class.
