Blithe Spirit


By Noel Coward

Directed by Phil Jordan

Winner! 2009 Drama Desk Award, Outstanding Revival The smash comedy hit of the London and Broadway stages, this much-revived classic from the playwright of Private Lives offers up fussy, cantankerous novelist Charles Condomine, re-married but haunted (literally) by the ghost of his late first wife, the clever and insistent Elvira who is called up by a visiting "happy medium," one Madame Arcati. As the (worldly and un-) personalities clash, Charles' current wife Ruth is accidentally killed, "passes over," joins Elvira and the two "blithe spirits" haunt the hapless Charles into perpetuity.

"Can still keep an audience in a state of tickled contentment" - Ben Brantley, The New York Times, 2009"A world-class comedy" -, 2009
