The smash comedy hit of the London and Broadway stages from the playwright of Private Lives, Blithe Spirit is a much-revived classic and winner of Tony, Oscar and Olivier Awards. This hilarious romp 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.
