Alfred Hitchcock once said, "Drama is life with the dull bits cut out," which explains his penchant for casting crust-less sandwiches in every leading role. Chew on exciting art with today's GrouponLive deal for two tickets to see Driving Miss Daisy, presented by the Milwaukee Chamber Theatre in the Cabot Theatre at the Broadway Theatre Center. The play runs from Thursday, October 13 to Sunday, October 30, with matinee, evening, and afternoon performances spread across 16 showtimes. Choose between the following options:

The much-lauded Driving Miss Daisy, which garnered a Pulitzer Prize as a play and four Academy Awards as a film, follows the unlikely friendship between a stubborn elderly Jewish woman and her African-American chauffeur. Set in Atlanta from 1948 to 1973, the play elbows into sensitive, urgent issues, from racism to religious prejudice to backseat driving. Ruth Schudson plays the title character with garrulous, willful zest in her 65th production with the Milwaukee Chamber Theatre, excavating Miss Daisy's complex growth as she ages from her sixties to her nineties. As the sixth production in Milwaukee Chamber Theatre's Pulitzer Prize series, Driving Miss Daisy rides the energy of past award-winning scripts such as Rabbit Hole, Picnic, and Curious George Learns the Alphabet. Audiences can arrive early to enjoy the grand design of the European-styled Cabot Theatre, where a shimmering chandelier illuminates arched, gilded balconies and 360 cushy sapphire seats.
