Highlights Driving Miss Daisy starring Angela Lansbury and James Earl Jones
James Earl Jones, Angela Lansbury and Boyd Gaines star in Alfred Uhry's Pulitzer Prize-winning classic about a friendship that crosses lines of class and race. Sparks fly when Boolie Werthan (Gaines) hires Hoke Colburn (Jones) as a driver for his elderly but still feisty and independent mother Daisy (Lansbury). Set in the south between the late 1940s and early '70s, the relationship between Daisy and Hoke grows into a true friendship as the world changes around them.

Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
