Blithe Spirit Summary

At last, Broadway has a comedy to die for!

Angela Lansbury, Rupert Everett, Christine Ebersole, and Jayne Atkinson 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.

Blithe Spirit Cast Members:

Angela Lansbury, Rupert Everett, Christine Ebersole, Jayne Atkinson, Simon Jones, Deborah Rush
