The Baltimore Waltz

Mahaney Center for the Arts, Seeler Studio Theatre

Diagnosed with a mysterious, fatal disease that’s rampaging through the country’s elementary schools, a schoolteacher embarks on a lust-driven tour of Europe with her brother, a newly laid-off librarian from San Francisco. But in reality we are in the late 1980s, at the height of the AIDS epidemic, and the brother has died of the disease. Written by Paula Vogel, this whimsical odyssey is revealed to be a sister’s deep and idiosyncratic expression of sorrow and love. Directed by Claudio Medeiros ’90. A Theatre Program event. Tickets: $15 Public/$12 Midd ID holders/$8 Youth/$6 Midd students; on sale March 18
