The current Driving Miss Daisy production made it's debut at the Golden Theatre officially opened on Broadway on October 25th 2010 and ran until 9th April 2011.  The play was a huge commerical hit with it's big name stars drawing in the crowds.

The production is set to be staged this October in the West End although the actual theatre has yet to be announced.
