Coming soon: "Blithe Spirit"

One of the funniest plays in the American theater is "Blithe Spirit," written by Noel Coward and debuted in 1941.

The play opens this weekend at Soulstice Theatre for a run until Nov. 17.

The comedy focuses on socialite and novelist Charles Condomine, who invites the eccentric medium and clairvoyant Madame Arcati to his house to conduct a seance, hoping to gather material for his next book.

The scheme backfires when he is haunted by the ghost of his annoying and temperamental first wife, Elvira, following the seance. Elvira makes continual attempts to disrupt Charles's marriage to his second wife, Ruth, who cannot see or hear the ghost.

Featured in the role of Madame Arcati is Liz Mistele, one of the funniest actors in Milwaukee.
