Features: Driving Miss Daisy on stage was a 2010 revival of the Pulitzer Prize-winning 1987 classic. The original production for Driving Miss Daisy on stage ran from April of 1987 to June of 1990 with over 1000 performances, and it won Alfred Uhry, the writer of the play, a Pulitzer Prize in 1988. The revival ran from October of 2010 until January 29, 2011.

Why We Go: Driving Miss Daisy NYC starred acting legends James Earl Jones and Vanessa Redgrave. The 2010 revival of Driving Miss Daisy on stage had an incredible cast and retained the original charm of the play on Broadway.

  • Respect: This production of Driving Miss Daisy NYC was one of the few non-musical productions on Broadway in today's day and age. It retained the original charm of working with basic props while still being a very compelling performance.
  • Characters: James Earl Jones and Vanessa Redgrave did a phenomenal job as Hoke Coleburn and Daisy Werthan, respectively. These endearing characters, both with lots of depth, are the reason why this production was so emotionally powerful to the audience.
  • Tear-Jerker: The play was both funny and sad. Audiences laughed at the comical play between the two main characters, both stubborn in their own ways, and cried at the end as the characters aged throughout the performance.

Inside Knowledge: The original production of Driving Miss Daisy on stage inspired a movie to be made about it. The 1989 film starred Jessica Tandy and Morgan Freeman, and the movie earned itself an Academy Award for best picture.

Do's and Don'ts:
  • Do Have Tissues On-Hand: The final scenes for this play are very heartbreaking. Even the hardest hearts are going to go soft by the end of this production, so be sure to have tissues on hand for when your tears start running.
  • Do See James Earl Jones: James Earl Jones is a timeless actor who has done some incredible work on stage and on the silver screen. Don't limit your experience of his acting talents to this production and check out his other movies and upcoming shows.
  • Don't Go Alone: The Broadway shows are more fun with a group, and it can be cheaper too. Get a group together and come see this show with friends or family.
  • Don't Wait on Seeing This Show: The latest production of Driving Miss Daisy on stage will be closing in a short period of time. Get your tickets and go see the show now rather than later, or else you'll miss this wonderful Broadway revival forever.
