In Sydney today rehearsing for the Australian tour of the stage production ‘Driving Miss Daisy', are actors Angela Lansbury, James Earl Jones and Boyd Gaines.
News media took photos and conducted some short interviews with the cast from the popular American play, which inspired the Academy Award-winning film.
By all accounts Driving Miss Daisy should be one of the most popular plays to hit Australian shores this year.
Well done to everyone involved in the production.
Don't miss 2013's hottest ticket as two of the world's greatest living actors arrive in Australia to perform Alfred Uhry's timeless Pulitzer Prize-winning classic, Driving Miss Daisy.
Australian stages in Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne and Adelaide will light 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.
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 is the must-see show for 2013.
