The Tale of the Allergist’s Wife

A well-to-do Manhattan housewife with intellectual and artistic inclinations finds herself facing a mid-life crisis. Feeling unwanted and inadequate, she suddenly has to cope not only with an almost ideal husband and a kvetchy mother, but also with another woman who suddenly enters her life – a gorgeous creature of infinite talents and contacts, who feels fulfilled and happy. This long-running Broadway hit is a savvy satire of urban upper middle class life-styles.

by Charles Busch
Directed by Dave Ebersole
