Winner of the 1997 Tony Award for Best Play, and written by  the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Driving Miss Daisy, The Last Night of Ballyhoo is a charming and bittersweet comedy set in Atlanta on the eve of World War II. It’s Christmas, 1939.  Gone With the Wind is having its world premiere and Hitler is invading Poland. Meanwhile, a segment of Atlanta’s Jewish elite is more concerned with who will be attending Ballyhoo, the social event of the season. The arrival of a  handsome stranger from New York forces the Freitag family to deal with who they really are as they are pulled apart and mended again with plenty of gentle comedy, sweet romance, and unexpected turns.
