One night only! The Theatre at Marietta College presents THE BALTIMORE WALTZ by Paula Vogel. In our Storytellers Series, exciting plays have been selected to compliment and cultivate discussion about our productions as well as current events. Don’t miss this timely reading!

Winner of the Obie Award. A giddy, fleet fantasy based on the love and adventures of a brother and sister, one of whom has a fatal disease. In the opening scene, the brother is wearing pajamas, but it is his schoolteacher sister who’s diagnosed with a deadly virus that sends the two of them spinning off to Europe to find romance and a cure before the final crashing scenes where reality sets in.

“…a crazy-quilt patchwork of hyperventilating language, erotic jokes, movie kitsch and medical nightmare…that spins before the audience in Viennese waltz time, replete with a dizzying fall.” —NY Times

“…an immensely likable winning comedy-drama…” —Hollywood Reporter

Intended for Mature Audiences
