Blithe Spirit

Closed July 19, 2009

This genial but bumpy new revival of Nol Cowards Blithe Spirit stars Angela Lansbury in her juiciest role in years.

Why See Blithe Spirit?

This 1941 comedy features Coward's sparkling dialogue and a wickedly clever plot

Rupert Everett, Christine Ebersole, Jayne Atkinson and Angela Lansbury star in Noel Coward's BLITHE SPIRIT, directed by Michael Blakemore. It's the wickedly funny comedy about a successful novelist haunted by his biggest fan -- his deceased first wife.

What happens when his once-beloved won't take "til death do us part" for an answer? What happens when his new wife finds out they're not alone anymore? Can anyone conjure up a solution?

You don't need a crystal ball for the answers - just tickets to BLITHE SPIRIT.
