News   PHOTO CALL: "A Meeting of the Hokes" Morgan Freeman Visits Driving Miss Daisy
 
The Broadway production of Driving Miss Daisy celebrated its 100th performance Feb. 10 with a "A Meeting of the Hokes."

Morgan Freeman, Academy Award-nominated for his performance in the 1989 film adaptation, met with his stage counterpart, James Earl Jones. The two actors posed at the driver's seat of a vintage 1953 Packard.


 

Driving Miss Daisy concerns Daisy Werthan, "a widowed, 72-year-old Jewish woman living in midcentury Atlanta, [who] is deemed too old to drive, [and] 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."

The show stars James Earl Jones, Vanessa Redgrave and Boyd Gaines.

 

John Golden Theatre is located at 252 West 45th Street. Tickets, priced $65-$125, are currently on sale via Telecharge.com.
