Historic Barth Hotel for ‘Driving Miss Daisy’ Opens July 26th

This has to be the perfect setting for the delightfully touching play, “Driving Miss Daisy.” Nothing in life is more important than friendship, love, humor and loyalty. Looking forward to this production at the…Barth Hotel. Classic serendipity arrives at this treasured landscape where, no doubt, the tv networks have missed a true reality opportunity. Hope to see this. I encourage lovers of theatre to get to the Barth.

Senior Housing Options’ “Driving Miss Daisy” at The Barth

(Denver, Colorado) Alfred Uhry’s “Driving Miss Daisy” in the historic lobby of The Barth Hotel is the fifth annual summer theater fundraiser for Senior Housing Options (SHO), a non-profit providing quality affordable housing and services for 500 older adults in Colorado.

Former Broadway actor Billie McBride plays the Southern Jewish widow Daisy, whose son (played by the Denver Center Theater Company’s Sam Gregory) insists she hire a driver (Dwayne Carrington– reprising the role for which he won a Colorado Community Theater Coalition best actor award in 2000), despite her rigorous complaints.

Set in Atlanta from 1948 – 1973, “Driving Miss Daisy” is a profound comedy about aging, prejudice, family and unlikely friendships.  Ashlee Temple directs.

“Driving Miss Daisy” performs in the historic lobby of The Barth Hotel, 1514 Seventeenth Street in the heart of LoDo.  (The Barth is one of Senior Housing Option’s 14 residences and home to 62 elderly and disabled adults.)  The play opens July 26 and runs every Thursday, Friday and Saturday at 8:00pm through August 18.  Tickets start at $25.
