The Last Night of Ballyhoo / Alfred Uhry

Английски език.

"To all appearances, The Last Night of Ballyhoo declares itself to be nothing more than an old-fashioned, family-centered, living-room comedy. The time is 1939, when the most important thing in young Lala Levy’s life is the Atlanta premiere of Gone With the Wind. More urgent to her widowed mother, Boo, is the question of who will be Lala’s date for the last night of Ballyhoo, the formal dance that crowns the party season for Atlanta’s Jewish Society....

"A darker tone emerges, though. Without ever departing from its basic structure as a rich, often hilarious romantic comedy, Ballyhoo exposes the previously unexplored territory of Southern anti-Semitism and how Jews turn it against each other and themselves....

"Part of the triumph of The Last Night of Ballyhoo is that Uhry allows ethical dilemmas and class tensions to arise without turning his characters into stick figures or the drama into a predetermined ‘issue’ play. Also remarkable is Uhry’s gift for creating a stage full of characters so rich they all seem like leading roles."

—Don Shewey, American Theatre

ALFRED UHRY’s first play, Driving Miss Daisy, opened at Playwrights Horizons Theatre in New York City and went on to win many awards, including the Outer Critics Circle Award and the 1988 Pulitzer Prize for Drama. For the film version, he won the Academy Award®. Other films include Mystic Pizza and Rich In Love. Mr. Uhry’s second play, The Last Night of Ballyhoo, commissioned by the Cultural Olympiad for the 1996 Atlanta Olympics, opened on Broadway in February 1997. It won Best Play by the American Theatre Critics Association, the Outer Critics Circle and the Drama Desk, as well as the 1997 Tony Award.
