Plays like Driving Miss Daisy remind us why theater is so powerful — sans preachiness, and without fairly beating the audience over the head with a message (albeit, a few tears are probably in order). American Stage produces the Pulitzer-winning Daisy, which tells the post-WWII story of a wealthy, sharp-tongued Jewish woman who forges a close, unlikely bond with her African-American chauffeur over the course of 25 years. The theater company's "most requested play" stars theater scene staple Bob Devin Jones, and Ann Morrison in the title role (pictured). Visit americanstage.org for more info.
