Blithe Spirit playing at The Lyric Stage Co.

I just purchased tickets from The Lyric Stage Company to see the Noël Coward play, Blithe Spirit on Friday.  According to Wikipedia the play is about an English socialite and novelist who invites an eccentric clairvoyant to his house to conduct a séance, hoping to gather material for his next book. The scheme backfires and he becomes haunted by the ghost of his annoying first wife who makes continual attempts to disrupt Charles's current marriage to his second wife. Sounds like it is good for a few laughs, right? If you've seen this production or one from another theater company, please let me know what you thought.

This production stars Paula Plum as Elvira, a good theater colleague of mine, probably the finest and most versatile actress in the Boston area. For her alone . . . but I hear there are other joys in this production as well.

Always nice to discover another gay blogger from Boston.
