Our Recommendation You may think the film's dream team of Jessica Tandy and Morgan Freeman can't be beat, but at the very least it has been rivaled with this new Broadway production starring Vanessa Redgrave and James Earl Jones as the prickly Miss Daisy and her very patient driver Hoke. The play is and always has been rather slight, as it's really just a series of vignettes that illustrate Daisy and Hoke's changing relationship over the decades (this production runs just 90 minutes). But it's a joy to watch two fine actors embody playwright Alfred Uhry's wonderfully drawn characters. Redgrave easily slips into the role of the feisty Southern lady who is slow to accept that she can't drive herself any longer. And James Earl Jones is a particular delight, giving Hoke not only kindness and charm, but also making him a bit quirky. They are two misfits who find each other and form a lasting friendship that is touching to behold.
