Two of the world’s greatest living actors arrived in Australia in 2013 to perform Alfred Uhry’s timeless Pulitzer Prize-winning classic, Driving Miss Daisy.

Australian stages in Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne and Adelaide lit up with the extraordinary talents of the legendary five-time Tony Award® winner and three-time Academy Award® nominee Angela Lansbury and two-time Tony Award® winner and Honorary Academy Award® recipient James Earl Jones. Also starring four-time Tony Award® winner Boyd Gaines, David Esbjornson’s acclaimed, smash-hit production has dazzled audiences and critics alike on Broadway and the West End.

a timeless appeal.”

Inspiration for the much-loved Oscar winning movie, Driving Miss Daisy is the charming, poignant and utterly compelling tale of the unlikely, long-lasting friendship that blossoms between a prickly, elderly Southern matriarch and her kind-hearted chauffeur, Hoke. As the wheels turn and the decades roll by against a backdrop of prejudice, inequality and civil unrest, the pair slowly transcend their differences and ultimately grow to rely on each other far more than either of them ever expected.

Sparklingly funny, irresistibly heart-warming and with an unmissable stellar cast, Driving Miss Daisy was the must-see show in 2013.
