Remember the movie Driving Miss Daisy? Well, The Last Night of Ballyhoo is by Alfred Uhry, the author of that hit comedy/drama. But the latter production is a little less-known. It's about when Gone With The Wind premiered, just as Hitler was invading Poland. Of course, in the play Atlanta's elitist German Jews are more concerned about whose attending a social event called Ballyhoo. A mother is freaking out over her daughter attending the event, because she's hoping she'll find the man of her dreams there. What will happen? You'll just have to go see it to find out. $10-$21. Continues through Nov. 16. Nov. 13, 7:30 p.m.; Nov. 14 & 15, 8 p.m.; Nov. 16, 2:30 p.m. Theatre Charlotte, 501 Queens Road. 704-376-3777. www.theatrecharlotte.org.
