The smash comedy hit of the London and Broadway stages, this much-revived classic from the playwright of Private Lives offers up fussy, cantankerous novelist Charles Condomine (played by Josh Boulden), re-married but haunted (literally) by the ghost of his late first wife, the clever and insistent Elvira (played by Charis Boulden) who is called up by a visiting “happy medium,” one Madame Arcati (played by Jennifer Buttel). Jennifer’s over the top, eccentric character is a role made famous by the late Angela Lansbury in both London’s West End, Broadway and national tour productions.
