Blithe Spirit

Hilberry Theatre
by Noël Coward

Blithe Spirit, Sir Noel Coward’s hauntingly hilarious comedy, is the story of Charles Condomine, a successful novelist, who has invited friends to the lavish estate he owns with his second-wife, Ruth, to witness a séance. He hopes to prove that seances are just superstitious nonsense. The only problem is, he’s invited a very real medium, Madame Arcati, to conduct the evening’s ritual. When Madame Arcati unleashes the spirit of his first wife, Elvira, things go from “oh dear” to “oh no!” as Elvira wreaks havoc on Charles, Ruth, and the house. Impeccably clever, Blithe Spirit is ripe with wit and charm and will leave you rolling in your graves from laughter.

Encore Michigan review

“Jasmine Monét Roosa’s performance as Madame Arcati is a comedic stand-out… The fabulous set design is by Fred Florkowski, with dramatic lighting by Megan O’Brien and sound design by Sydney McMillan. Together, this team makes the supernatural effects come alive. The costumes are sumptuously elegant… This is a wonderful production and may be just what you need… to escape the news for a night of pure laughter.”
