‘Allergist’s Wife’ play dates, times and ticket information


Play:  The Tale of the Allergist’s Wife

Playwright:  Charles Busch (Vampire Lesbians of Sodom, Psycho Beach Party)

Synopsis: The storyline revolves around a pampered middle-aged Upper West Side doctor’s wife by the name of Marjorie Taub, who falls into a deep, dark state of depression that culminates in a meltdown of epic proportions in, of all places, a Disney store. However, she is delivered from despair by the serendipitous appearance of her flamboyant childhood friend, Lee, a self-proclaimed “passionate pain in the ass” who’s shared soup with Andy Warhol, discussed landmines with Princess Di and marched with Martin Luther King, Jr. The next thing Marjorie knows, Lee is living with her and her husband and indulging in more than just their psychiatric red varietals wine.

Awards: Winner of the Outer Critics Circle John Gassner Award
