Hot'1 has no vacancy
By Jeffrey Seller
t nHE HOT'L BALTIMORE, which
-opened at the hands of the Univer-
sity Players Showcase Monday night, is
a beautiful synthesis of human interac-
tion. Like an orchestral symphony, it is
dynamic, with a sense of rhythm and
intonation that is the quintessence of
The audience is confronted with a
F barrage of variegated characters who
inhabit the Hotel Baltimore, a run-
r4down, old hotel "left over" from
society's better days that soon will fall
Sunder the wrecker's ball.
Not unlike the hotel, these people are
te. "left over"-they haven't yet reaped
the rewards from President Reagan's
"trickle down effect." They struggle to
assemble some sort of "good life" in a
society that no longer has a place for
them. Some are old and filled with
memories of the good times they once
E experienced, others are young and
a vibrant, with hopes and dreams to fill
books, and still others are somewhere
in between, stuck with nowhere to go.
As a group they resemble a
family-they love, they hate, they hurt,
and most importantly, they need one
another. Their seemingly trivial' in-
teraction makes their lives bearable,
makes the next day one for which it is
worth waking up. -
. The conductor of this symphony is
.director Gary Garrison, a doctoral
student in directing whose dissertation,
incidentally, concerns Hot'L's
x; playwright. Garrison has neatly woven
the human interaction with such finesse
and sensitivity that we almost forget we
are in the theatre, and for a moment,
t actually believe we are sitting in an old
hotel watching people.
It is not the riveting storyline, lut
- rather a potpourri of rebels, cynics, and
idealists that incites our interest.
These aspirations are clearly reflec-
ted in the three prostitutes which
inhabit the hotel.
Terry McCarthey, as an ebullient
young prostitute who possesses a
special fondness for our railroad
Ghouhes: a i
system, projects an effervescent young
woman with the ability to persever,
never losing the lope which guides her,
all the while managing to play den
mother to the other people at the hotel.
April, played by Chris Barry, con-
trasts well with the optimism of McCar-
thy's character. April is a lewd, past-
her-prime prostitute, whose tainted-
ness from years of being kicked around,
manifests itself as sarcasm and
cynicism. Her biting commentaries,
projected with gusto, are hysterical,
but reflect a woman who has endured
The third prostitute, Suzy, played by
Gayle Cohen, is endowed with a
vivacious, irresistable spirit. She seeks
to find the rewards.she deserves, asser-
ting, "I need love," as she journeys off
to live with another pimp. And if she
doesn't find it there, she will keep on
looking, again and again.
At first, the Hot'L Baltimore may
seem a depressing play, shedding a dim
light on today's realities. These derelic-
ts appear to go nowhere, and will
probably never find their way to their
promised land. Yet, they are sur-
vivors-they don't wallow in self
pity-they will make it to tomorrow and
the next day, and they will find momen-
ts of happiness along the way. We ad-
mire their ability to persist more than
we feel sorry for them.
To its credit, the play utilizes a soun-
dtrack of pop songs that connect it to
the here-and-now in much the same
way as the Big Chill soundtrack connec-
ted that film to the 1960's. Songs like
"Girls Just Wanna Have Fun," "Out
Here on My Own," and "She Works
Hard for the Money," project mood and
style, and provide vitality to the play.
And Sam Harris' gutsy rendition of
''Somewhere Over the Rainbow,'
provides us with an ever meaningful
theme song for Kansas, The Hotel
Baltimore, or wherever.
Hot'L Baltimore will be performed
through March 17 in the Trueblood
Theatre in the Freize Building. Per-
formances begin at 8:00 p.m. Monday
through Saturday, and at 2:00 p.m. on
Sunday. Tickets are $3.00 and can be

aims his camera, and slaps it all
together. The film could easily be the
improvisation of a couple of nerdy thir-
teen-year-olds fooling around in their
basement with dad's super-8 on a rainy
Saturday afternoon. .
The fact is, if you've seen the com-
mercials you've literally seen the best
moments of The Ghoulies, and can
safely (and wisely) spend your time
