By Alfred Uhry, directed by Adam Konowe.
It's December 1939, and "Gone with the Wind" is about to storm the silver screen. Hilter invades Poland... but the biggest concern of Atlanta's Freitag family is 'Ballyhoo', a lavish ball that marks the end of the social season for the elite southern Jewish community. The arrival of a handsome stranger from New York, Uncle Adolph's new (and very eligible) assistant, unwittingly becomes a pawn between the two young female cousins in the household. Ultimately, he forces the family to deal with who they really are as they are torn apart and mended again, with plenty of hilarious comedy, sweet romance and unexpected turns. Winner of the 1997 Tony award for Best Play... "achingly beautiful"... You'll have a BALL at Ballyhoo!
