The Hotel Baltimore used to be the swankiest place in town - now it has a date with the wrecking ball. Eviction notices just went out to its residents, who live on the fringes of society and call the seedy hotel home. This acclaimed play from the author of Balm in Gilead is filled with everyday humanity - unexpectedly intimate and moving. Helmed by visionary director Tina Landau, The Hot L Baltimore reveals the private lives of an unconventional community about to be turned inside out.
A discussion with Director Tina Landau and Steppenwolf Co-Founder Terry Kinney, who appeared in Steppenwolf’s
pivotal 1980 production of Wilson’s Balm in Gilead, which later transferred to New York.
