The Last Night of Ballyhoo
The Last Night of Ballyhoo takes place in Atlanta, GA, in December 1939. Gone With the Wind is having its world premiere and Hitler is invading Poland, but Atlanta's elitist German Jews are much more concerned with who is going to Ballyhoo, the social event of the season. Especially concerned is the Freitag family: bachelor Adolph, his widowed sister, Beulah (Boo) Levy, and their widowed sister-in-law, Reba. The family gets pulled apart and then mended together with plenty of comedy, romance, and revelations along the way. Events take several unexpected turns as the characters face where they come from and are forced to deal with who they really are.
