The 1997 Tony Award Winning play by the author of Driving Miss Daisy, The Last Night of Ballyhoo tells the story of the Freitag family of Atlanta GA in December 1939. The secular German Jewish family has been in the US for 150 years, is completely assimilated and is only interested at this moment on who will be taking who to Ballyhoo, the big German Jewish social event of the winter season. All seems normal until Joe Farkas, a New Yorker from Brooklyn who grew up with Shabbat, Passover and Yiddish, arrives to work for the family.

This comedy takes a humor-filled view of what it means to be Jewish as it challenges the Freitag family to explore its Judaism beyond the facade of its social and worldly existence.

Featuring: Shiri Cooper, Will Fleagle, Lisa Jacobs, Ed Klein, Isaac Kotlicky, Amalia Mark, Susan Vick
