Blithe Spirit - A Classic West End Comedy!

Blithe Spirit
Opened in 1941, it played for over 2,000 performances and has been one of the world’s favourite comedies ever since. Blithe Spirit is one of Noel Coward’s best known plays and is making a triumphant return to the West End from the 2nd March 2011! Playing at the Apollo Theatre, you can save over 15% on Blithe Spirit tickets (stalls and dress circle) until the 24th March, so buy your London theatre tickets soon!

Blithe Spirit tells the story of novelist Charles Condomine and his second wife Ruth as they are literally haunted by a past relationship when an eccentric medium manages to conjure up the ghost of Charles's neurotic first wife, Elvira, at a séance. They have assumed the preposterous Madame Arcati is a fraud who will simply entertain their dinner guests with a little chicanery and supply Charles with material for his forthcoming novel. But when Elvira appears, visible only to Charles, and is determined to sabotage his current marriage, life - and the afterlife - begin to get complicated in this laugh-out-loud comedy. So don’t miss out on our cheap theatre tickets offer!

The show will star legendary English actress Alison Steadman OBE as Madame Arcati. Steadman has performed on radio, television, film and the stage with a long list of credits to her name. She has appeared in many films, including Shirley Valentine, Confetti, Wilt, Life Is Sweet and Topsy Turvy. Her television work includes Fat Friends, Let Them Eat Cake, The Singing Detective, Adrian Mole: The Cappuccino Years (as Pauline Mole) and Pride & Prejudice (as Mrs. Bennet). From 2007 to 2010 she appeared in the BBC comedy Gavin & Stacey as Pamela.

Blithe Spirit also stars Ruthie Henshall, a veteran of the stage. Since her West End debut in 1987 in a production of Cats (as Grizabella), Ruthie has achieved what many can only dream of purely through her determination and sheer talent. Her onstage credits include Miss Saigon, Annie, Les Miserables (as Fantine), Oliver! (as Nancy), The Vagina Monologues, The Woman In White and possibly most famously in Chicago as Roxie Hart, a role she most recently played in the Broadway company of the smash hit musical.

With those 2 amazing names added to the production it already sounds like a blazing success before it has even started! So don’t delay in getting your London theatre tickets today by contacting our London theatre ticket specialists.
