This 'Pond' is golden!

The national tour of On Golden Pond starring Tom Bosley and Michael Learned kicked off Aug. 22 in St. Paul, MN. This play, written by Ernest Thompson, has had several incarnations. First it was seen at the Hudson Guild and then opened on Broadway in 1979. Then in 1981 it was released as a movie staring Henry Fonda, Katharine Hepburn and Jane Fonda receiving three Academy Awards and three Golden Globes. In 2005 the Broadway revival opened at the Cort Theatre staring James Earl Jones and Leslie Uggams. Now this critically acclaimed production is hitting the road with Tom Bosley and Michael Learned (and coming here Dec. 5-10). Check out the most recent review from The Tennessean!
