Two of Cincinnati’s finest local professional actors are sharing the Carnegie’s Otto M. Budig stage in a production of Alfred Uhry’s Pulitzer Prize-winning play. (The movie version was an Academy Award winner in 1989.) Dale Hodges is playing the ornery, strong-willed and wealthy Atlanta widow, Daisy Wertham, and Reggie Willis is Hoke Colburn, the long-suffering African-American chauffeur hired to drive her — against her wishes and his better judgment. But their feisty relationship evolves into a profound friendship. Staged by Mark Lutwak, director of education at the Cincinnati Playhouse, this production could be a winner. 


 Through Nov. 16. $18-$25. The Carnegie, 1028 Scott Blvd., Covington, Ky., thecarnegie.com.
