The Tale of the Allergist's Wife

Charles Busch

A raucous comedy from one of America's most outrageous playwrights! New York dilettante Marjorie Taub, a middle-aged doctor's wife, is hooked on culture - mornings at the Whitney, afternoons at MOMA, evenings at BAM. Plunged into a mid-life crisis of Medea-like proportions, she's shaken out of her lethargy by the reappearance of a fascinating childhood friend. The New York Times says, "The Allergist’s Wife earns its wall-to-wall laughs." Includes an interview with playwright Charles Busch. An L.A. Theatre Works full-cast performance featuring Amy Aquino, Estelle Harris, Richard Kind, Dileep Rao and Jobeth Williams.
