Driving Miss Daisy – Vanessa Redgrave and James Earl Jones Sept 26th – Dec 17th

The Tony Award revival of Driving Miss Daisy with Vanessa Redgrave and James Earl Jones about the decades-long relationship between a stubborn Southern matriarch and her compassionate chauffeur will be transferring  to the West End  from September 26th through December 17th.  I think tickets will sell out quickly so recommend ordering them soon.  THEATRE TICKETS

REVIEWS FOR BROADWAY VERSION:

“GIANTS STILL WALK ON BROADWAY.

Giants of the theater belong to a magnificent species that is fast disappearing. And when one shows up in your neighborhood, you polish your eyeglasses and go for a look. James Earl Jones and Vanessa Redgrave are by anyone’s reckoning, two of the last of these titans – stars of uncommon statures who, in combined years of experience, have known and commanded the stage for more than a century. Their FIERY, SHADOW-CASTING PRESENCES HAVE ILLUMINATED SOME OF THE MOST CHALLENGING ROLES IN WORLD THEATER. AND I WOULD SEE THEM IN ABSOLUTELY ANYTHING. In Driving Miss Daisy they give responsible, intelligent performances that are infused with old pros’ joy in the mastery of their craft. Ms. Redgrave and Mr. Jones calmly but forcefully GRAB OUR ATTENTION AND HOLD IT, without appearing even to try.”

-Ben Brantley, The New York Times

“A PERFECT NIGHT ON BROADWAY.

This production is SO RICH AND REAL. It’s as FINE A PRODUCTION AS I CAN IMAGINE. JAMES EARL JONES is GIVING A PERFORMANCE THAT IS GOING TO BE TALKED ABOUT FOR THE REST OF HIS LIFE—AND AFTER. VANESSA REDGRAVE makes an equally DEEP and PERSUASIVE impression.  Tickets are going to be hard to obtain, so DO WHATEVER YOU HAVE TO DO TO GET ONE.”

-Terry Teachout, The Wall Street Journal

! WITH THREE GREAT ACTORS

AT THEIR APOGEE, THIS ENCHANTING REVIVAL IS THE BEST THEATER CAN BE. AlFRED UHRY’S PLAY is ABSOLUTELY HONEST and BEAUTIFULLY WRITTEN about real people learning as they live, caught on the wing by an author who has something very human to say. THE ACTING IS SIMPLY SUPERB. That is if the vast talents of the cast can be called simple. They are tried and true performers who bring ULTIMATE ARTISTRY well beyond mere craft. VANESSA REDGRAVE is SUBLIME, going from chilly hauteur to sassy INCANDESCENCE to BONE-DEEP HUMANITY.”

-John Simon, Bloomberg News
