Academy Award winner Morgan Freeman and five-time Tony nominee Dana Ivey return to the indelible roles they created in Alfred Uhry’s Pulitzer Prize-winning Driving Miss Daisy. Tony Award winner Walter Bobbie will direct and complete the cast the role of Boolie, which he understudied in the original production.
When Daisy Werthan, a widowed, 72-year-old Jewish woman living in mid-century Atlanta, is deemed too old to drive, her son hires Hoke Colburn, 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. Their hopeful meditation on race relations, changing times, and the transformative power of friendship has become one of our most beloved American stories.
