Just like the mischievous ghost Elvira, Noël Coward’s 1941 comedy keeps coming back for a reason. The oft-revived Blithe Spirit, delightful as ever, takes up residence on the City Lights stage this spring. When novelist Charles invites the eccentric medium Madame Arcati over for a séance to help shake his writer’s block, she conjures up his late wife. And Elvira is happy to stir up a little trouble – especially when it comes to Charles’ current marriage.
Blithe Spirit previews March 23 and 24, and runs through April 23. (No shows on March 26 and April 9.) Showtimes are Thurs.-Sat., 8 p.m., Sundays at 2 p.m. Discounts are available for students, seniors (65+), educators, and groups, and for military personnel.
