While all the focus today is on the woes of the mega-budget Spider-Man Turn Off The Dark, here’s a little positive stage news: the Broadway production of Alfred Uhry’s Pulitzer Prize-winning play Driving Miss Daisy has recouped its $2.6 million investment in less than three months. It is the first play of the 2010-2011 Broadway season to make back its money. The David Esbjornson-directed play, which stars James Earl Jones, Vanessa Redgrave and Boyd Gaines, opened October 25 at the Golden Theatre, and the run has been extended through April 9 with the original cast. The play first opened Off-Broadway in 1987.
