PNT's DRIVING MISS DAISY to Reunite Manfredi and Bowen, Begin. 9/25
The popular "Driving Miss Daisy," directed by 2014 Pulsar Award winner for Best Director and three time 2014 Wilde Award nominee John Manfredi, will begin its run at Performance Network Theatre on September 25, 2014. The project reunites Manfredi and Bowen last seen together at the Network in the critically acclaimed "K2". Tickets are on sale now at www.pntheatre.org and by calling the box office at 734-663-0681.
"We're very excited to have this warm, touching, and funny play in Ann Arbor," said Company Manager Sara Dean. "There is a lot of excitement about bringing such a successful show in at the start of our season." Manfredi and Bowen teamed up on an earlier version of "Daisy" almost a decade ago and garnered awards for Best Play, Best Actor, Best Director and the show was named one of the years top ten by the Detroit Free Press.
Written by Alfred Uhry, "Driving Miss Daisy" is set in 1948 when the son of an elderly Southern matron hires a chauffeur for his mother. Over the next 25 years, the relationship between the matron and the chauffeur blossoms into one of respect and friendship as the civil-rights movement brings changes to the old South. With audience favorites Bryan Lark as Boolie and Nancy Kammer, a multiple Wilde Award Nominee, in the title role, "Driving Miss Daisy" is sure to be a great start to the new PNT season.
Performances of "Driving Miss Daisy" take place Thursday through Sunday beginning September 25 through October 26, 2014.
