The Last Night of Ballyhoo


The year is 1939 and Atlanta's posh German Jews are preparing for Ballyhoo, their annual lavish country club ball.  The Freitag family hopes that the party of the year will be the chance for their daughters to meet their future husbands--but when their uncle brings home his new employee, a handsome Eastern European bachelor from Brooklyn, everyone must confront their own prejudices, desires and beliefs.  Winner of the Tony Award for Best Play, The Last Night of Ballyhoo is a comedic and enthralling romance by the writer of Driving Miss Daisy.
