THE LAST NIGHT OF BALLYHOO
WHO ARE THE PLAYERS?
By Alfred Uhry
Directed by Fred Nuernberg
WHAT'S THE DEAL?
The Last Night of Ballyhoo won the 1997 Tony Award for Best Play. This comedy/drama, written by Alfred Uhry (Driving Miss Daisy, Parade), opened on Broadway at the Helen Hayes Theatre in February 1997. Hailed by the LA Times as "...[an] achingly beautiful play...luminous and powerful."
WHAT'S IT ALL ABOUT?
It is December, 1939 and the Freitag family (Alfred, his sister Boo, his sister-in-law Reba, and nieces Lala and Sunny) reside amongst the upper echelon of the German-Jewish community in Atlanta, GA. The group looks forward to attending the lavish social event of the season: Ballyhoo. This play light-heartedly explores the struggle with religious identity in times of great change.
