Playwright: Noël Coward


Researching material for a new novel, Charles engages Madame Arcati, a spiritual medium of uncertain talent, to conduct a séance in his home. Quite by accident, she summons the spirit of Charles's first wife and cannot make the disruptive spirit go away.


This is a return engagement of the original Broadway production of Blithe Spirit, which had closed for a summer hiatus. Following this limited run, the production transfers to Philadelphia to begin a national tour.
