Driving Miss Daisy News: Regular Season and Preseason Updates
This Pulitzer Prize-winning play debuts on Broadway at the Golden Theatre starring Vanessa Redgrave and James Earl Jones. Written by Alfred Uhry, Driving Miss Daisey explores the relationship between Daisy Werthan, a widowed 72-year old Jewish woman living in mid-century Atlanta and Hoke Coleburn, her African America chauffeur. Directed by award-winning director David Esbjornson, the creative team consists of acclaimed artists like set designer John Lee Beautty, costume designer Jane Greenwood, lighting designer Peter Kaczorowski, and sound designer Christopher Cronin. Utilizing a bench and plain wooden chairs to serve as Miss Daisy?s various cars and state of the art projections to help set each scene on a nearly bare stage, this production is truly a fresh new take on this classic comedy. Driving Miss Daisy tickets are highly coveted among tourists and locals alike in New York City.
