Blithe Spirit
Gielgud Theatre

Angela Lansbury returns to the London stage to reprise her Tony Award-winning performance as Madame Arcati in Noël Coward’s comic play.

Researching material for a new novel, Charles engages Madame Arcati, a spiritual medium of uncertain talents, to communicate with the dead. Quite by accident, she summons the spirit of Charlesís first wife, Elvira, and can't make her go away. Ruth, Charles' current wife, is rather put out. This 1941 comedy features Coward's sparkling dialogue and a wickedly clever plot.
