New Theatre Restaurant - Driving Miss Daisy
Bookmark and Share
Reviewed on 2004-10-10
(Runs Sept. 2 - Nov. 7) Join Michael Learned from The Waltons in Driving Miss Daisy opening soon at the New Theatre Restaurant.

This is a warm, funny story about two radically dissimilar people, a wealthy, educated, Jewish woman and a meager-wage earning, illiterate, African-American man, who are brought together by happenstance and forced to build a relationship. The story of Driving Miss Daisy unfolds over a 25-year period from 1948 to 1973. Having recently demolished a brand new Packard, Daisy Werthan, a rich, sharp-tongued 72-year-old Jewish widow is informed by her son Boolie that she must use a chauffeur. Boolie hires a soft-spoken, thoughtful African-American named Hoke Coleburn .

Daisy initially fights the idea. Then, over 25 years the two form an unlikely bond. This is a beautiful story in its simplicity. It is character driven and provides a stimulating experience for the audience. The meal is top notch as usual featuring a variety of gourmet foods. We tried the two theme items, a Georgia Peach drink and Bourbon Pecan Pie in tradition of the old South.
