Alfred Uhry's famous play Driving Miss Daisy (winner of the 1988 Pulitzer Prize and Outer Critics Circle Award for Best Off-Broadway Play) has captured crowds for its astonishing dynamic character interactions between Miss Daisy Werthan, a cold, white Southern lady with a bulk of attitude and Hoke Colburn, a humble black man who becomes Daisy's chauffeur. The story, set in 1948, highlights racism and prejudices in America. This show (by the Davidson Community Players) is not to be missed. Jan. 8-18. $18-$20. Jan. 8-10, 8 p.m.; Jan. 11, 2 p.m.; Jan. 15-17, 8 p.m.; Jan. 18, 2 p.m. Duke Energy Theatre, 345 N. College St. 704-372-1000. www.blumenthalcenter.org.
