Review: Driving Miss Daisy

One Sentence Summary:   Fantastic one act play about an old Jewish woman and her African American driver set between 1948 - 1972.

Trivia:   Stars the unbeatable Vanessa Redgrave and James Earl Jones. Broadway royalty. Talk about talent! The role of the driver was originated on Broadway by Morgan Freeman, who also starred in the movie version in the 90s.

Best thing about it:   The acting. This is the best acting we saw in New York (which is no surprise considering we mainly saw musicals). Their awkward relationship is beautifully understated, and they play it perfectly.

We left thinking:   "I wish the stupid cow behind us hadn't loudly ruined the ending!"

Rating: 9 / 10
