Even The Jews In Atlanta Were Anti-Semitic

Man, these jews and their theater. What will they say next? According to Alfred Uhry and the jews at Miami's Hillel Community Theatre, Atlanta jews used to be anti-semites. Who won't they accuse?

The Hillel Community Theatre will explore the sensitive issue of Jewish anti-Semitism in their final production of the season, "The Last Night of Ballyhoo." Written by Pulitzer Prize winning playwright Alfred Uhry, this play won the Tony for best Drama of 1997. In "Ballyhoo," Uhry examines a theme he hinted at in his first play, "Driving Miss Daisy," namely, the discrimination against Eastern European Jewish immigrants by German Jews in the deep south. The setting is Atlanta just before the opening of "Gone with the Wind" in the home of the Levy and Freitag families.
