April 7–9 & 14–15: ‘Hot L Baltimore’ in Brattleboro

New England Youth Theatre presents The Hot L Baltimore from April 7 to 9 and 14 to 15 at 100 Flat St. in Brattleboro.

The Hotel Baltimore used to be the swankiest place in town but now it has a date with the wrecking ball, and its residents — a collection of down-and-outers living on the fringes of society — have just received their eviction notices.

The Hot L Baltimore” reveals the lives of an unconventional community about to be set adrift once more. The authentic and gritty dialogue, often overlapping, gives the experience of eavesdropping on real, bustling people in real, bustling time, and helped make August Wilson one of the most distinguished American playwrights of the late 20th century.

Performances are April 7 to 9 and 14 to 15: Fridays at 7 p.m., Saturdays at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m., and Sundays at 2 p.m. Tickets for these performances are $10 for students, $13 for adults, and $12 for seniors.

Tickets may be purchased in advance at, in person at the NEYT Box Office, or by phone 802-246-6398 from noon to 5 p.m. on Wednesdays.
