Hughes is not an investor in the production, she’s just a fan. “A Trip to Bountiful” was originally a TV movie that became a theatrical release in 1985, winning Geraldine Page a Best Actress Oscar. The Broadway play is a triumph of so-called “color-blind” casting, as the characters were not originally intended to be African-American.
“When it came to me it was in trouble,” Hughes says. “And then Cicely won the Tony for the number one actress on Broadway right now. What a great year for African-Americans on Broadway – four winners this year. You all please go see “The Trip To Bountiful” on Broadway at the Sondheim Theater. It’s there until September.”
