As tonight marks the Broadway opening of “The Trip To Bountiful,” New York Knick All-Star center, Tyson Chandler and his wife Kimberly have officially joined the show’s production team.
According to a press release, the happily married couple were more than thrilled to join Horton Foote’s classic play which stars Cicely Tyson, Cuba Gooding, Jr., Vanessa Williams, and Condola Rashad.
“Kimberly and I are very excited to join the producing team behind this landmark production of the American classic, The Trip To Bountiful,” the NBA star said in the release before Mrs. Chandler added; “Tyson and I were extremely moved by the play and its message of honoring one’s history, heritage, and home.”
