Noel Coward’s 1941 play Blithe Spirit is a witty comedy about a novelist who, after participating in a seance, finds that he is being haunted by his his dead first wife (much to the chagrin of his current, living wife!).
This is a wonderful opportunity to see the marvelous Angela Lansbury (Murder, She Wrote, Gaslight) play a very wacky medium and to catch actor Rupert Everett (My Best Friend’s Wedding) being droll as ever live onstage. The production starts off a little slow, but once the ghostly shenanigans begin, it becomes increasingly hectic and hilarious.
