Directed by Kevin Sowers

Winner of the 1997 Tony Award for Best Play. “Everything falls into place in this…wonderfully crafted script.” —Variety. “Alfred Uhry’s charming Broadway comedy (sort of) THE LAST NIGHT OF BALLYHOO…has a subtext and undertow of thought. It is a delightful comedy freighted with an uncomfortable message.” —New York Post. “Alfred Uhry’s achingly beautiful play THE LAST NIGHT OF BALLYHOO…is…luminous and powerful. It will most likely find a place in the American canon alongside Uhry’s DRIVING MISS DAISY…Uhry draws his characters with so fine a pen, on such a solid foundation, that the story takes on the sharp poignancy of life.” —Los Angeles Times.
