Last month First Lady Michelle Obama hosted a White House screening of The Trip to Bountiful, a new TV movie which can trace its roots back to the early days of broadcast television. The latest remake, which premieres this weekend on Lifetime Television, has two contemporary connections to Nyack, NY.
Nyack was a stop on The Trip to Bountiful’s journey that included two runs on Broadway and the latest television production. The author of play, Horton Foote, lived here. Additionally, the recent film and stage productions were scored by composer and village resident John Gromada.
