Last night I went to see Blithe Spirit again. I was delighted to be the guest of my friend Byrne, who writes StageBuzz.com.
The play is light and fizzy with old fashioned wit. The cast is running it through very tightly and it seems as though they are having as much fun as the audience is. Angela Lansbury was fiestier than ever and the ghostly duo, Christine Ebersole and Jayne Atkinson, have found some very funny moves to make it even more a physical comedy. Jayne has become one of my favorite stage actresses and I can't wait to see her in another production.
There is now exactly one month until the run finishes. Get tickets at broadwaybox.com.
Bonus sightings: Cynthia Nixon sat directly in front of us. Tony Walton was a few rows ahead.
