Theater: The Baltimore Waltz

Come out to see this student-directed play that tells the compelling story of a school teacher infected with Acquired Toilet Disease. Watch as she travels across Europe with her brother searching for a cure in a story full of love and loss couched in what is considered a “deadly serious comedy.” Paula Vogel wrote this play after her brother’s death from AIDS, and many of the themes are a reflection of the role that the disease played in the ’80s and ’90s. “The Baltimore Waltz” will take you along for the humorous but simultanously serious journey.
