Blithe SpiritAngela Lansbury plays the clairvoyant Madame Arcati in Michael Blakemore's production of Blithe Spirit, Noel Coward's comedy, appearing on the London stage for the first time in almost 40 years. The actress best known for her long running role as Murder She Wrote sleuth Jessica Fletcher plays Arcati who, when hired by author Charles Condomine, played by Charles Edwards, accidentally summons the spirit of his first wife, Elvira, who begins causing problems with his second wife, Ruth, played by Janie Dee who was awarded best performance in a musical at the 2013 UK Theatre Awards for her role in 'Hello, Dolly!'.

 

About Gielgud Theatre

From the outside, the Gielgud Theatre is an impressive sight, towering four storeys over Shaftesbury Avenue, its height further emphasized by the turret on top. The interior is also magnificent, with richly-decorated pillars supporting the boxes and lavish Baroque ornamentation. Built in 1906 and known as the Globe Theatre for most of the 20th century, it was renamed after the great actor Sir John Gielgud in 1994. More about Gielgud Theatre
