Blithe Spirit in Broadway BLITHE SPIRIT
Minnesota State University Mankato - Andreas Theatre
The smash comedy hit of the London and Broadway stages, this much-revived classic is from the playwright of Private Lives. It offers up fussy, cantakerous novelist Charles Condomine, re-married but haunted (literally) by the ghost of his late first wife, the clever and insistent Elvira who is called up by a visiting "happy medium," one Madame Arcati. The play was first seen in the West End of London in 1941, creating a new long-run record for non-musical British plays of 1,997 performances. It also did well on Broadway later that year, running for 657 performances. Minnesota State Mankato presented Blithe Spirit in 1956 and summer of 1988.
