The Baltimore Waltz The Short List (Theater) Closing (Theater and Galleries)

When: Mondays, Thursdays-Sundays. Continues through Feb. 19 2017

Brown Paper Box's production of longtime Brown University professor Paula Vogel's 1992 script—sporting dialogue that sounds like a spoof of guidebooks—is tightly wound with tension that's inevitably bound to release in explosive fashion. Jenna Schoppe plays Anna, a first-grade teacher who has never traveled abroad; when she contracts a terminal illness from her students via a toilet seat, she recruits her brother Carl, performed by Paul Michael Thomson, for a trip to Europe. Gangly and versatile Justin Harner portrays a variety of bellboys and fuckboys bagged by Anna, who's hungry for sex after ten years of erotic suppression. —Max Maller
