"Mothers and Sons"

Tuesday, April 15, 2014

Playwright Terrence McNally talks about his play “Mothers and Sons,” along with stars Tyne Daly and Frederick Weller. The play is about a woman who pays an unexpected visit to the New York apartment of her late son's partner, who is now married to another man and has a young son. Challenged to face how society has changed around her, generations collide as she revisits the past and begins to see the life her son might have led. “Mothers and Sons” is playing at the Golden Theater.

I like SJP and feel she is certainly able to converse with the best of them but hosting the LLS is quite something else. I feel she is a bit over her head here and truly feel for her. There is surely a skill to hosting and Mr. Lopate should be all the more appreciated for his ability.

Children should be raised as in ancient Sparta. They should be taken from their mothers at age 7 and learn to fight, steal, and kill wolves until they are tall, strong, lean and mean. And sex with each other is no problem.

When I heard about the theme of this play, I remembered "The Perfect Ganesh." Wasn't one of the women similar to Katherine in Mothers & Sons?
