DRIVING MISS DAISY
10/16/2014 to 11/16/2014

Told through vignettes detailing the shift in Southern racial attitudes between 1948 and 1973, Driving Miss Daisy chronicles the decades-long relationship between a stubborn, Southern matriarch and her proud, African-American chauffeur who journey from suspicion and mistrust to respect and affection in this Pulitzer Prize-winning play. Join DTC and the indomitable Miss Daisy in this iconic tale of the transformative power of friendship that will warm your heart.

Driving Miss Daisy runs 85 minutes and is performed without an intermission.

I had not been to this theater before so didn't know what to expect. I was enchanted by all three of these actors and I can say that I enjoyed this production more than the movie I saw so many years ago....and that was a really good movie!

Alfred Uhry's beautiful and brilliantly human play has been given a sterling, funny, and moving production that is as fresh as...well, a Daisy..Do yourself a favor and see it!

My daughter and I so enjoyed today's performance. It was thought provoking on so many different issues and was beautifully acted by all 3 actors. The discussion afterwards was valuable too. I believe the comment about Hoke's being a 2 dimensional character on the printed page highlights the wonderful acting that Mr. El-Amin brought to the role. He breathed such life into Hoke. What a special event this was for us. Thank you all!

I saw Driving Miss Daisy tonight with Project Discovery. I would like to compliment the cast and production crew as a whole for creating a world and a story I did not want to walk away from. I would also like to give a very big compliment and my deepest respect to Ms. Jefferies, who hit every word, every mannerism dead on. I have assisted with nursing folks for as long as I can remember, and I am more than familiar with the way they walk, talk, set their jaw, etc. Ms. Jefferies left out no detail, no matter how small. To that, I tip my hat. Wonderful performance tonight. I'm certainly saving this ticket stub.

The cast is awesome. I witnessed the performance on Sunday October 19, 2014.The story line was not only entertaining but educational as well. Hats off to the cast and crew.

Saw the show today at the Sunday matinee preview...do not miss this show!The cast was superb!!! Annalee Jeffries, who stepped in for the actress from Nebraska, was just magnificent. Whomever the other actress was could not have matched Ms Jefferies heart-wrenching performance. They had the audience laughing and crying with their stellar performance!
