"It is a joy to once again step into the role of Madame Arcati, and bring Noel Coward's classic comedy Blithe Spirit to wonderful audiences here in North America who have supported me for over seven decades."

Dame Angela Lansbury

Why See Blithe Spirit?

HAIL TO THEE, BLITHE SPIRIT

Angela Lansbury takes her wonderful turn as medium Madame Arcati on tour!

On the trail of the occult for a new novel, socialite Charles Condomine finds himself messing with the wrong kind of supernatural beings when he enlists the eccentric Madame Arcati, a medium, to help with a seance. But the hapless Madame Arcati unknowingly summons the spirit of Charles' ex-wife, the vengeful Elvira and she is none to impress with being back on this mortal coil...

Opening on London's West End in 1941, Noel Coward wasn't sure about the welcome it would receive. Would the public be ready for a darkly comic farce about ghosts in the midst of the war? But he needn't have worried; the mischievous Blithe Spirit was a hit, with its typical Coward wit and wisdom. Now with the imitable Angela Lansbury at the helm as the hilarious Madame Arcati, this ghostly comedy will do more than just send shivers down your spine!

SOMETHING STRANGE IN YOUR NEIGHBOURHOOD?

harles Condomine wants to write a book on ghouls and ghosts and the occult, but ends up getting far more than he bargained for when he invites a medium, Madame Arcati to host a seance in his house for material. But that's when his angry ex-wife Elvira makes contact from the other side, not at all pleased to see that Charles has moved on, marrying Ruth...

Making sure only Charles can see her, she starts a series of troublesome events, starting harmless, but eventually becoming potentially life threatening. Its up to Charles and Madame Arcati to exorcize the troublesome spook, and fast!

DID YOU KNOW?

Blithe Spirit has been reincarnated as both a film, starring the dreamy Rex Harrison and as a musical, High Spirits, opening on Broadway in 1964.
