I must say that "Blithe Spirit" was one of the most extraordinary performances I have ever seen on Broadway. Having gone to see it for the sole purpose of seeing Angela Lansbury on stage, I was pleasantly surprised when each of the other cast members emulated her stage abilities. Ms. Lansbury's dances when she goes into her trance are the highlight of her performance; they are so hysterical! Anybody who desires a good laugh should go to the Shubert Theatre and enjoy the wondrousness that is "Blithe Spirit"!

Saw Blithe on 3/22 on a whim. Whim turned into whimisy and away it went. Angela Lansbury, as beloved as ever, was a must watch. Hard to believe an 83-yr-old can flit, flutter and flap that effectively! She was eye candy, especially in her fantastical costumes.

Rupert Everett simply oozes debonairre. I can't believe he's never done Broadway before.

The wives ramp up the cattiness. Although it's astounding to note that Ebersole has years on Everett and Attkinson. She must have a painting in the attic because she looked stunning! And you just HAVE to watch the maid whenever she races by.

At a time when there's so much doom and gloom in the world, Blithe Spirits is just the ticket to fanciful, farcical relief. Do go see it!
