Description

  • Great Performances: Alfred Uhry's Driving Miss Daisy

    Alfred Uhry's Pulitzer Prize-winning play Driving Miss Daisy comes to television with five-time Tony Award winner and three-time Academy AwardŽ nominee Angela Lansbury and two-time Tony Award winner and Academy AwardŽ winner James Earl Jones as Daisy Werthan and Hoke Colburn, respectively. Four-time Tony Award winner Boyd Gaines reprises his Broadway role as Daisy's son Boolie Werthan.

    Recorded in Australia at the Comedy Theatre in Melbourne, Uhry's classic play is a timeless, searing, funny, and ultimately hopeful meditation on race relations in America, told through the complex relationship between two of popular culture's most enduring characters. When Daisy Werthan, a widowed, 72-year-old Jewish woman living in midcentury Atlanta, is deemed too old to drive, her son hires Hoke Colburn, an African American man, to serve as her chauffeur. What begins as a troubled and hostile pairing, soon blossoms into a profound, life-altering friendship that transcends all the societal boundaries placed between them. This iconic tale of pride, changing times, and the transformative power of friendship has become one of the most beloved American stories of the late twentieth century.
