Quotes & Highlights

Hot L Baltimore was adapted into a short-lived 1975 ABC sitcom, produced by Norman Lear and starring James Cromwell, Richard Masur, Charlotte Rae and Conchata Ferrell.

Description

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 and Burn This 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.

The production features ensemble members Alana Arenas, Kate Arrington, Jon Michael Hill, James Vincent Meredith, Yasen Peyankov and Molly Regan with Sean Allan Krill, TaRon Patton, Namir Smallwood, Samuel Taylor, Allison Torem and Jacqueline Williams.
