Deep Dish Theater Company will present Paula Vogel’s acclaimed comedy "The Baltimore Waltz" Feb. 24 through March 17. Directed by Chip Rodgers, the play replaces the previously announced Terra Nova and continues the company’s 11th season at University Mall.
"The Baltimore Waltz," a sensation when it debuted 20 years ago, follows a brother and sister who flee a frightening medical diagnosis by embarking on a fantastical trip across Europe. A third actor plays the quirky characters they encounter, including the Little Dutch Boy (at age 50) and Harry Lime, from the classic movie "The Third Man." Ms. Vogel is the Obie Award-winning writer of such celebrated works as "Desdemona," "A Play about a Handkerchief" and "How I Learned to Drive."
Performances begin Wednesday and Thursday at 7:30 p.m., Friday and Saturday at 8 p.m., and Sunday at 2 p.m. Deep Dish is located in Chapel Hill's University Mall, on Estes Drive and US 15-501.
Tickets are $21 for adults and $19 for seniors regularly, with a $2 discount for Wednesday and Thursday shows. Student tickets for all performances are $14. Wednesday, Feb. 29, is Cheap Dish Night—all tickets are $10 (no reservations accepted). Call (919) 968-1515 for reservations and visit www.deepdishtheater.org for information.
