“THE BALTIMORE WALTZ begins in the waiting room of Johns Hopkins Medical Center in Baltimore, Maryland, before taking us on a fantastical journey to Paris, Amsterdam, Munich and Vienna. So we needed a set that could hold all of those locations. We were also inspired by the off-kilter angles of film-noir classics like The Third Man. Ultimately, designer Daniel Meeker came up with a black and white set that evokes the institutional setting of a hospital, but where nothing is at a right angle, enhancing the dizzying sense of vertigo that pervades the play. Video designer Alan Cline will use the large wall as a surface to project images that will transport us to Europe and back again.”
