The Hot L Baltimore Lanford Wilson
Lanford Wilson's THE HOT L BALTIMORE is one of the most important plays of the last 100 years, influencing generations of playwrights. The actors in the original cast had not reached fame before their HOT L debuts, but since then they have achieved extraordinary careers in theater, film and television. This renewed collaboration is a rare treat for anyone who loves excellent playwriting and phenomenal acting.
Lanford Wilson, famous for full-length plays such as The Hot L Baltimore, Balm in Gilead, Burn This, and the Talley series, was also a master of one acts. Wilson's Women are three of his best, starring actresses from the legendary Circle Rep company in parts they played on Circle's stage-Ludlow Fair (with Conchata Ferrell and Trish Hawkins), The Great Nebula in Orion (with Tanya Berezin and Stephanie Gordon), and The Moonshot Tape, a searing monologue featuring Judith Ivey in a performance that won her the Obie Award.
