Riverside Center for the Performing Arts Presents Driving Miss Daisy starring Karen Grassle and Bill Grimmette

The Riverside Center for the Performing Arts in Fredericksburg, Virginia is proud to present Alfred Uhry's Pulitzer Prize winning play, Driving Miss Daisy, starring Karen Grassle. Located at 95 Riverside Parkway, Fredericksburg, VA, performances begin on Wednesday September 28th and run until Sunday November 6th.

From its landmark Off-Broadway production in 1987 to the remarkable success of the Oscar-winning film version with Jessica Tandy and Morgan Freeman (four Academy Awards, including Best Picture), Driving Miss Daisy has become one of the most beloved American stories of the late twentieth century.

When this revival opened on Broadway (with Vanessa Redgrave as Daisy Werthan), Bloomberg News declared, "The enchanting revival...is the best theater can be." And The Wall Street Journal called it "A perfect night on Broadway. Do whatever you have to do to get a ticket!"

Riverside Center Producing Artistic Director, Patrick A'Hearn, has assembled an outstanding cast and production team. Karen Grassle, best known for her role as "Ma" in the long-running NBC series Little House on the Prairie, is reprising the role of Daisy Werthan for her fourth time at Riverside Center. Karen also appeared on Broadway in Lanford Wilson's The Gingham Dog, Butterflies are Free and Sweet Sue. She is joined by Bill Grimmette(The Wire, Homicide Life on the Street, Kennedy Center, Arena, Olney) as Hoke Colburn and Alan Hoffman (Riverside, Olney, Toby's) as Boolie Werthan.

The production is being directed by Helen Hayes award winner Rick Hammerly. Scenic design is by Chris Raintree, lighting design by Michael Jarett, and the costume designer is Gaye Law.
