NEW YORK (AP) — Michelle Obama and her daughters caught Broadway's "The Trip to Bountiful" after spending part of the day watching tennis at the U.S. Open.

The first lady and her girls slipped into their seats at the Stephen Sondheim Theatre just as the first act was starting Saturday night and received a huge ovation when they took their seats for the second act.

The trio went back stage after the show and met the crew and cast, including Cicely Tyson, Vanessa Williams and Cuba Gooding Jr.

The first lady was in town to promote her "Let's Move" campaign during Arthur Ashe Kids' Day at the U.S. Open.
