What happens when an immigrant Jewish accountant from St. Louis falls in love with a Missouri country girl? You get gefilte catfish, matzo balls made of cornmeal, and a unique love story that has charmed millions and made the world see that Lebanon, Missouri, is a town of far greater depth of spirit than most people realized.
I know Hot L is an old chestnut of the theatre repertoire, but frankly I never got into it. Hot L Baltimore is a story about a hotel that is going to be demolished in a month and its several interesting tenants. But that’s exactly what was wrong with it. I felt there was too much and I wasn’t hooked by the plot or story line.
