It is the winter of 1939: Gone with the Wind is having its world premiere and Hitler is invading Poland. But in Atlanta, the city’s elite German Jewish community is more concerned with who is attending the social event of the season than with the mounting tensions in the world. In this Tony Award-Winning BEST PLAY from the author of Driving Miss Daisy, a tender love story plays out against the backdrop of impending war. The Last Night of Ballyhoo is a touching romantic comedy that is also a beautifully written portrait of a Jewish family facing who they are and where they come from as generations and cultures clash in the American south. A Tony-Winning BEST PLAY from the author of Driving Miss Daisy!
“An achingly beautiful play! Luminous and powerful!” —Los Angeles Times
