The success of such adaptation is so immense that the trend has continued to growand even films that don't do so well on the box office are being adapted for the stage. The mainreason for stage adaptations is that the film has usually done well and the producers wish tocapitalize on its success by transferring it to other mediums. Even though it hasn't been donemuch recently, there was a time when a number of stage plays were adapted into films. Almosteveryone has seen the 1989 classic film Driving Miss Daisy with Morgan Freeman but very fewpeople know that the Academy Award Winning film was actually adapted from a stage play ofthe same name.

It is a heartwarming story that exploreshuman emotions and the beauty of relationships.
