Alfred Uhry

Angela Lansbury, James Earl Jones, and Boyd Gaines

Two of the world’s greatest living actors — five-time Tony Award and three-time Academy Award nominee Angela Lansbury and two-time Tony Award winner and Academy Award winner James Earl Jones star in Alfred Uhry’s Pulitzer–Prize winning play Driving Miss Daisy.

Driving Miss Daisy, shot during the play’s Australian tour, after sell out seasons on Broadway and London’s West End, offers a once in a lifetime opportunity to see two iconic Broadway and Hollywood veterans in one of the most enduring and popular stage plays of our time. The production also stars four-time Tony Award winner Boyd Gaines.

Driving Miss Daisy tells the affecting story of the decades-long relationship between an elderly Southern Jewish woman, Daisy Werthan, and her compassionate African-American chauffeur, Hoke Colburn. Their iconic tale of pride, changing times and the transformative power of friendship has warmed the hearts of millions worldwide.

"Fantastic performance by both Angela Lansbury and James Earl Jones. Cast of three kept you thoroughly entertained for the entire performance."

"Excellent performance by the three actors - Angela Lansbury carried it so well with a mammoth amount of lines to remember, which she did faultlessly."
