  • Overview

    One highly spirited wife is fun – but two is fertile ground for this smash comedy hit of the London and Broadway stages from the witty pen of Noël Coward.  Meet cantankerous novelist Charles Condomine, re-married to Ruth but haunted (literally) by the ghost of his late first wife, the clever and insistent Elvira who has been conjured up by a visiting “happy medium,” one Madame Arcati. What’s a husband to do with such an abundance of riches. . .or troubles? Join the fun to discover how Charles gets the genie – or at least Elvira — back into the bottle!
    Run time 2.5 hours including intermission

    Can still keep an audience in a state of tickled contentment. – Ben Brantley, The New York Times
