Who Gets Top Billing in Driving Miss Daisy?


The marquee is up for the Driving Miss Daisy revival on Broadway, and James Earl Jones‘s name is the first one listed!

He’s on the left and Vanessa Redgrave comes next, on the right.

This might be an alphabetical way to handle two titans of such magnitude, but isn’t Vanessa slightly bigger, not only because she’s an Oscar winner but because she’s playing the title role?

Then again, in the movie version’s ads, Morgan Freeman was billed over Jessica Tandy.

Was that alphabetical, too?

And does anyone remember that Patti LuPone had a part in the movie?

(She was fourth billed.)
