Cleveland Play House to Present BELL, BOOK AND CANDLE, 1/11-2/3
Before there was the hit TV show Bewitched, there was the stylish and funny romantic comedy, Bell, Book and Candle, set in the hip 1950s New York City where we meet Gillian, a smart, independent and beautiful woman - and a witch.
When she decides to amuse herself by casting a love spell on her handsome young neighbor, her life is turned upside-down. Directed by Artistic Director Michael Bloom, the Cleveland Play House production of Bell, Book and Candle by John Van Druten will begin in the Allen Theatre at PlayhouseSquare on Friday, January 11 and run through Sunday, February 3, 2013. Tickets are available by calling 216-241-6000 or online at www.clevelandplayhouse.com. Bell, Book and Candle is produced with support from Cuyahoga Arts and Culture and the Ohio Arts Council.
"This is one of those classic comedies that is just as fresh now as when it was written," states Michael Bloom, CPH Artistic Director. "I believe Bell, Book and Candle is wildly underestimated, and nothing makes me happier than introducing undiscovered gems to our audiences."
