Two-time Tony Award winner James Earl Jones (Hoke Coleburn), Tony and Oscar winner Vanessa Redgrave (Daisy Werthan) and four-time Tony Award winner Boyd Gaines (Boolie Werthan) star in the critically acclaimed production of Driving Miss Daisy. The play, written by Alfred Uhry and directed by David Esbjornson, enjoyed a record breaking sell-out run on Broadway earlier this year. When Daisy Werthan, a widowed, 72 year-old Jewish woman living in midcentury Atlanta, is deemed too old to drive, her son Boolie hires Hoke Coleburn, an African American man, to serve as her chauffeur. What begins as a troubled and hostile pairing soon blossoms into a profound, life-altering friendship that transcends all the societal boundaries placed between them.
