Driving Miss Daisy, by Alfred Uhry
Don't Miss It - Barbara McFann Rocks!
Friday, September 11, 2009
-1.0
This production of "Driving Miss Daisy" is a very tight, near professional-level. Directed by Rob Hardie, who as far as I know has never done a bad show, complete with his signature sound design, including some sound jokes and a very fittin' vintage radio excerpt from "The Open Mind."

Lou Brock (Hoke) and Kevin Renshaw (Boolie) are exactly what they should be, but it's Barbara McFann that makes the show. Her very real, believable interpretation of Miss Daisy was spot on. I had a lump in my throat at the final scene, which as you know if you've seen it before, is a "huge payoff" scene. And does it. Like any Rob Hardie show, this is a definite "don't miss."
