Blithe Spirit Play London

Theatre legend, Oscar-winner and five-time Tony Award-winner Angela Lansbury returns to the West End this spring in a new production of Noël Coward's Blithe Spirit. Angela will reunite with director Michael Blakemore to reprise her 2009 Tony Award-winning role as Madame Arcati.   Angela, whose stage and screen career spans seven decades, is known to millions as the much-loved Jessica Fletcher from the hit TV series Murder She Wrote, as well as her numerous roles on Broadway, in the West End and on film.

Researching for his new novel, Charles Condomine invites the implausible medium Madame Arcati to his house for a séance.   Whilst consumed in a trance, Madame Arcati unwittingly summons the ghost of Charles’ dead wife Elvira.  Appearing only to Charles, Elvira soon makes a play to reclaim her husband, much to the chagrin of Charles’ new wife Ruth. One husband, two feuding wives and a whisper of mischief in the air -  who will win in Coward’s unworldly comedy?

Be spirited away this spring with a performance not to be missed.
