  The Last Night of Ballyhoo at Theater J

The Last Night of Ballyhoo

Theater J
1529 Sixteenth Street, NW Washington

Playwright Alfred Uhry brilliantly mined his Atlanta Jewish upbringing for his Pulitzer and Oscar-winning Driving Miss Daisy, and he digs into it again for The Last Night of Ballyhoo, resulting in the same successful mix of thought-provoking drama and laughter, with a touch of romance. Now coming to the Edlavitch DCJCC's Theater J, the Tony-winning play takes you back to December 1939, as Atlanta hosts the Gone With the Wind premiere and Hitler invades Poland. But the biggest concern of the Freitag family is Ballyhoo, a lavish ball for the southern Jewish elite. When Uncle Adolph brings Joe -- his new, very eligible assistant -- home for dinner, sparks fly between his niece and the Brooklyn native, whose presence lights a fuse on a family dispute over long-held beliefs and prejudices.
