In art, as in life, some things need no translation.” –The Baltimore Waltz – Carl – Scene XII

10/17 – 11/1  | The Baltimore Waltz

by Paula Vogel

@ The Bartell Theatre

a Strollers Theatre, ltd production

score and live music by BC GRIMM

(Madison, WI) Strollers Theatre is proud to present The Baltimore Waltz by Paula Vogel, co-directed by John Cooper & Scott Albert Bennett. The show runs October 17th through November 1st at The Bartell Theatre’s Evjue Stage in Madison. Ticket prices are $20 for general admission; $15 for seniors, students and Strollers members.

In this comedic satire by Pulitzer Prize winner Paula Vogel, we follow Anna and her brother Carl on a European expedition. They strike out in search of adventure, hedonistic pleasure and the cure for her terminal illness, the fictitious ATD, Acquired Toilet Disease (the playwright’s metaphor for HIV).

A fantastical odyssey of the mind, with humor and heart, which suspends the apocalyptic catastrophe of losing a family member — a journey that celebrates life, art, sexuality, and the love of family. Paula Vogel won the Obie Award for this play.

Tickets may be purchased by visiting www.BartellTheatre.org.

In Honor:

Strollers honors the past 30 years of the fight to find a cure for HIV/AIDS. On April 23, 1984 the first diagnosis of the AIDS virus was announced. After three decades, this production will serve as a reflection of public perception and progress society has made in this time.  Strollers Theatre has established opportunities for donations to local HIV/AIDS programs and clinics at all performances. Talk backs after certain shows are requesting a donation amount that reflects this 30-year mark. This play was inspired by the tragic passing of Paula Vogel’s brother who had succumbed to the AIDS virus and we honor his spirit.

For any additional information, contact Phil Klein, Strollers Theatre Publicist for this show at philjoannee@charter.net or call 608-445-0579.
