Driving Miss Daisy in Broadway DRIVING MISS DAISY
COM Theatre
9/6-9/23/2018
This classic play focuses on elderly Jewish matron, Daisy Werthan, and her chauffeur, Hoke Coleburn, in mid-century Atlanta. At first, Daisy is none too happy about being forced to rely on a black man to get from one place to the next. Gradually, however, Hoke wins her over, and during the 25-year span of the play, the two develop a deep-rooted affection and mutual respect grounded in their own independence, strength, and stubborn integrity. This Pulitzer Prize-winning masterpiece is a delicate depiction of racial tensions, the passage of time, and the experience of aging.

JESUS HOPPED THE ‘A’ TRAIN arrives at 4th Wall Theatre Company on the heels of the Signature Theatre revival unanimously raved by critics with multiple sold out extensions. “Riveting, hilarious, heartbreaking –great art burrowing deeper the higher it flies.” The NY Times. “--A vital, pulsating drama.” The Hollywood Reporter. Winner of the 2018 Lucille Lortel Award for Outstanding Revival, JESUS HOPPED THE ‘A’ TRAIN tells the story of Angel Cruz, a bike messenger from New York City who is awaiting trial in Rikers Island prison for shooting the leader of a religious cult in the “ass”. He is on his knees, alone and terrified, trying to say a prayer he no longer remembers to a God he has all but forgotten. Angel’s court appointed attorney, Mary Hanrahan, is lucky if she can keep her client’s names straight. His guards are indifferent. Worse, Angel is subject to repeated inmate brutality, landing him in protective custody, where he finds himself in the company of a charismatic serial killer named Lucius Jenkins, a born-again believer who will change the course of Angel’s life forever.
