Storyline

Ethel and Norman Thayer are an old couple living "On Golden Pond". Their daughter, Chelsea, is 42 years old, and has never been married. She is dating a 45 year old dentist, and brings him up to Golden Pond to meet her parents. Her boyfriend, Bill, has a 14 year old son named Billy, who comes along. Young Billy has been virtually raised by his mother, who is newly divorced from his father. The troubled child is left with the elderly Thayers for some time, as his father and Chelsea take off for a tour of Europe. Character-driven story about an elderly man coming to terms with his age, and the nearing of death; a middle-aged woman attempting to enter into a father-daughter relationship with her dad, whom she has never known closely; and a young teenager dealing with parental divorce. Written by Laura K. B.

Poorly directed and boring
29 April 2001 | by (Warren, OR) – See all my reviews

One of the worst live productions I have ever had the displeasure to watch. Julie Andrews and Christopher Plummer did a good and fine acting job, but the production needed to be left alone. If I was to give this production any rating, it would have to be 3 due to the acting abilities of this production.
