They must have filmed this with out an audience, cause it was kept very quiet.
Well I didn't want to get into it, but he's a Satanist. Every full moon he sacrifices 4 puppies to the Dark Lord and smears their blood on his paino. This should help you understand the score for Wicked a little bit more. Tazber's: Reply to Is Stephen Schwartz a Practicing Christian

I posted it somewhere a while ago but that at the Induction at Bucks County Playhouse with Miss Lansbury they announced it was filmed.

I have some distant recollection of someone on some board (perhaps not this one) mentioning that s/he had attended a performance in Australia at which they were most definitely filming. I would certainly hope it was recorded with audience reaction. If not, that would be rather odd. But, anyway, yes please! If there's such a big cinema audience for a dreadful community theatre production of Sondheim's least successful musical, surely there's an audience for seeing two acting legends in a beloved and well known play. Would be a nice addition to the banner year Dame Lansubry is having, too.

It was the best theater experience of my life. A truly brilliant production and not just an acting showcase. So glad to hear that it was preserved and now can be seen by people all around the world.

One of the best plays I have seen, a story by Alfred Uhry which turns North/South hatred of each other, into a added Jewish/African American hate, that comes the strongest possible friendship.

it is just great.

Of course I'm talking about the Australian production, otherwise it'd be totally off topic. Not that I'm not satisfied with the Lincoln Center vid, the Australian production which was based on the Lincoln Center production could turn out terrible for all I know. It just kept me hanging. Every now and then I would want to check if it's finally released.

Oh how I hope this happens. Watch how you have to fly to an australian movie theatre to see it though.

I know this is being shown in London, does anyone know of any planned screenings in the US?
Now living in DC. I really have to change my name on the board.

I read somewhere that it's being shown in early June as part of the Sarasota Opera broadcast season. I really hope it will get to other parts of the U.S. as well. The trailer is available on youtube, and there is audience laughter audible on it.

I offer my first born to anyone who finds any information on a Los Angeles screening.

heres a weird quote from that prior broadway world article

"DRIVING MISS DAISY also has first-look deals with producers, including the Lincoln Center Theater, but there is still no word on a potential Broadway production."

um why?

I'd definitely see this in movie theaters, but more than that I really just want them to do this in NY so I can see it live. I've never seen Lansbury live, and it would be such a treat to see these two do these roles in person. But hey, I guess we gotta appreciate what we have, right?

why would this be produced in NY they just did it with Jones and Vanessa Redgrave like 3/4 years ago.

Agreed. That's why a Los Angeles mounting makes a lot more sense.

Here's the link to the list of theatres across the USA that will be showing Driving Miss Daisy: http://www.screenvision.com/cinema-events/driving-miss-daisy/

To be honest I would rather wish to see it first on PBS so Dame Angela could win that freaking Emmy already, but of course it's a tremendous luck that this production was filmed.
