Blithe Spirit Tickets
Legendary actress Angela Lansbury returns to the West End stage for the first time in almost 40 years in Michael Blakemore's new production of Blithe Spirit. Running for a strictly limited 15 week season, the Murder She Wrote star will reprise her Tony Award-winning Broadway role of Madame Arcati alongside Charles Edwards, Janie Dee, Sandra Dickinson, Simon Jones, Jemima Rooper and Patsy Ferran.
First staged in London in 1941, Noël Coward's classic masterpiece of high spirits and ghostly goings-on became one of the longest running comedies in the history of British theatre and has enjoyed numerous revivals over the years. With Coward's trademark wit and sophisticated banter dovetailed with moments of high humour, this sparkling comedyl is a winning combination that has rarely been bettered.
Author and socialite Charles Condomine and his second wife Ruth are hosting a dinner party and decide to hold a séance as after dinner entertainment. Expecting an evening of chicanery and wanting fodder for his next novel, Charles is shocked and horrified when the wildly eccentric medium and clairvoyant Madame Arcati inadvertently conjures up the ghost of his deceased neurotic first wife, Elvira. Visible only to Charles, it seems Elvira wants her husband back by fair means or foul and hilarious confusion ensues as she tries to sabotage his life and his marriage.
This sublime gem from the master of wit and irony is guaranteed to leave you laughing for more.
