Driving Miss Daisy in Australia! Opening night is February 3rd. The play runs until the end of May and hops from Brisbane to Sydney to Melbourne to Adelaide.
Appearing as Hoke, the man who drives Miss Daisy, is multiple award-winning actor James Earl Jones! I'm dying to see what he does with this part. I'm so accustomed to Morgan Freeman's version. (The latter originated the role onstage and performs in the award-winning film.)
This is a three-person play of a woman, her chauffeur and her son as they age over thirty years or so. Appearing as Daisy Werthan's son is Tony- nominated actor Boyd Gaines.
