Alfred Uhry won a Pulitzer Prize for his first non-musical play, Driving Miss Daisy. Now he's back with a controversial new comedy-drama, The Last Night of Ballyhoo, which won the 1997 Tony Award as Best Play. The show had its debut in Atlanta in summer of 1996, and New York critics weighed in with their reviews of the Broadway production Feb. 27; here's a chance to add your opinion to theirs.

Did you like the show? How well did it deal with its theme of prejudice within a single ethnic group? How was Dana Ivey's performance? And the rest of the cast? Does the show live up to your image of a Tony-winning Best Play? How would you relate its themes and concerns to your own life?

Write your comments -- and read those of others -- in the "Ballyhoo" subject under the Playbill Critics Circlopic on the Playbill On-Line Message Board. Playbill thanks, in advance, those who take the time to write.
