by CELIA FRANK, director of The Tale of the Allergist’s Wife
In his first play written for a mainstream audience, Charles Busch explores the life of middle-aged upper class matron Marjorie Taub, who lives with her doctor husband Ira in a New York upper west side condo. Her life is turned upside down when a friend from childhood re-enters her life. The original Broadway production garnered rave reviews and multiple awards including the Outer Critics Circle award.
It’s a thrill for me to have the opportunity to direct this laugh-filled show, something I have been waiting to do since it ran in New York ten years ago; and also to have such a talented cast that I am so fond of, and so perfect for their roles. They have exceeded my expectations. My heartfelt thanks go to them as well as this wonderful crew.
Enjoy the show!
