WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Don't miss the opportunity to see Tony Award-winners James Earl Jones, Vanessa Redgrave and Boyd Gaines on stage together in one of the most beloved and celebrated American stories of the 20th century, Driving Miss Daisy. David Esbjornson (The Goat, Or Who Is Sylvia?) directs the Broadway Premiere of Alfred Uhry's Pulitzer Prize-winning play, which is a timeless, searing, funny, and ultimately hopeful meditation on race relations in America, told through the complex relationship between two of popular culture's most enduring characters. When Daisy Werthan (Redgrave), a widowed, 72-year-old Jewish woman living in midcentury Atlanta, is deemed too old to drive, her son, Boolie (Gaines), hires Hoke Coleburn (Jones), 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. From its landmark Off-Broadway production in 1987 to the remarkable success of the Oscar-winning film version (4 Academy Awards, including Best Picture), and now its celebrated Broadway debut, Driving Miss Daisy has become one of the most beloved American stories of the late twentieth century.
