“The Tale of the Allergist’s Wife”
By Charles Busch
Jan 19-Feb 18, 2018
A Manhattan mid-life crisis comedy without apologies.
An upper West Side comedy: fast bright and unapologetic. Contemporary and biting, the dreaded “mid-life crisis” is the pulse of this play’s heartbeat. Leading lady Marjory Taub lives an unsatisfying life of romantic opulence. She yearns to study the great philosophers but is stuck trying to pick out the right chandelier for her living room. Her luxurious and equally depressing life is suddenly knocked about after the arrival of an old friend. Marriages, sex, and ennui are all on hilarious trial in “The Tale of the Allergist’s Wife”.
