Need Something To Do Thursday?

House cleaning sucks. All that dusting, dishwashing and vacuuming is exhausting and takes up time that could be used to, say, clip your toenails while watching trashy reality TV.

Yep, housekeeping is lame. Which is why the idea of living in a hotel, where you can have a spotless room every day without putting forth any effort, is such an appealing idea.

But the Hot L Baltimore, a retro-fabulous play opening tonight at the Langroise Recital Hall on the College of Idaho campus in Caldwell, paints a very different picture of hotel life.

Playwright Lanford Wilson set an off-Broadway record in 1973 with this play about hotel dwellers who face an uncertain future when their beloved home is scheduled for demolition. The play ran for an astounding 1,166 performances and won the New York Drama Critics Circle Award for the Best American Play of 1972-73, along with a slew of other awards.

It was so awesome that it was also made into a TV series. So, check out the College of Idaho's production, and maybe hotel life won't seem so fantastic anymore.
