    'Ballyhoo' is a great American play

    ALfred Uhry, the author of the Pulitzer prize-winning 'Driving Miss Daisy', has created in his second play (!) a wonderful look at a reformed Jewish family in Atlanta, GA in 1939. Ballyhoo is THE social event for young Jewish people in the South, and the two 'belles' in the Freitag home vie for dates to the big dance on the last night... Meanwhile, The parents argue and fret, Hitler is rising in Europe, 'Gone with the Wind' premieres in Atlanta, and a young Jewish man from Brooklyn finds himself a stanger in a very strange land. The characters are both hilarious and true, and the story artfully weaves them together and apart as they explore religion, social grace, racism, love, family unity and the human need to fit in. 'The Last Night of Ballyhoo' won the Tony Award for Best New Play, and is a stunning work. This reviewer is currently in rehearsal for a production of Ballyhoo--and I couldn't be more thrilled. Read it and weep... and laugh... and shake your head in amazement. And come see it!
