The Tale Of The Allergist's Wife - 2000 - Broadway Tickets, News, Info & More

Marjorie Taub, the wife of a philanthropic allergist, is engulfed in a life crisis of Medea-like proportions. Her children are grown, her beloved therapist died recently and her mother, obsessed with bowel movements, grates on her nerves. She tries to lose herself in a world of art galleries, foreign films and avant garde theatre, but finds she is barely able to rouse herself from her sofa. Her spirits suddenly soar when a fascinating and incredibly worldly friend from her childhood appears on her doorstep and introduces Marjorie to things both wild, funny, and sometimes unwelcome.
