Award-winning 'Ballyhoo'


Alfred Uhry's 1997 Tony Award-winning drama, "The Last Night of Ballyhoo," makes its Baltimore premiere at Everyman Theatre tomorrow night. Set in 1939 Atlanta and focusing on two rival college-age female cousins, the play returns to the world of German-American Jews in the South, which Uhry also explored in his off-Broadway hit, "Driving Miss Daisy."

Directed by Vincent Lancisi, Everyman's production features Megan Anderson and Shira Ginsburg as the cousins and Rosemary Knower and Stan Weiman as members of the older generation. The advance ticket sale for "Ballyhoo" has already broken the box office record for nine-year-old Everyman, which has added eight extra performances to meet the demand.

Show times at Everyman, 1727 N. Charles St., are 8 p.m. Wednesdays through Saturdays, with matinees at 2: 30 p.m. Sundays and Dec. 4, 11 and 18, through Dec. 19. Tickets are $15, except tonight's pay-what-you-can preview and tomorrow(11-19) night's opening, which is $25 and includes a post-play reception with the cast. Call 410-752-2208.
