The Baltimore Waltz

directed by Peter Zinn

In this humorous allegory for the AIDS crisis in the 1980s, Anna, an unmarried schoolteacher, is diagnosed with ATD (Acquired Toilet Disease). It's fatal and mysterious, so she and her brother Carl take off for a dream tour of Europe before the inevitable happens. As Anna drowns herself in the sensuality of food and sex, Carl becomes involved in a wild Third Mannish espionage scheme to find a cure for his sister. But the cracks in the story start to widen and soon the audience becomes aware that they are engaged in Anna's fantasy attempt at keeping her brother's spirit alive when she can not save his life. THE BALTIMORE WALTZ is Paula Vogel's most personal play, written in reaction to her brother's death from AIDS-related pneumonia in 1988. It is dedicated "To the memory of Carl - because I cannot sew." Retro Productions is proud to be donating 15% of our ticket sales from this production to Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS. Language and Sexual situations in The Baltimore Waltz may make it unsuitable for children under 14. It is strongly recommended that parents accompany children under the age of 17 and be prepared to have a discourse with them on safe sex and AIDS.
