Stage Talk: The Last Night of Ballyhoo

ballyhoo-poster-revised-large-webThe Last Night of Ballyhoo takes place in Atlanta, Georgia, in December of 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. On Stage Talk, hear from Kate Williams who plays “Lala” and Kevin Bennett who plays “Joe Farkas” in the Anchorage Community Theater’s production of The Last Night at Ballyhoo, now running at the ACT Studio Theater.
