Frothy, Clever, Great acting, Great staging, Period piece

See it if you enjoy old-fashioned escapism. Blithe Spirit is much ado about nothing...but delightfully so. A very polished period piece.

Don't see it if you expect Lansbury to still be masterful. She was adorable, but elderly. Not as adept as the other actors. The set and costumes are great. Read more

Great acting, Great staging, Great writing, Hilarious, Clever

Don't see it if If you don t like fast pace , corky drama. The comedy can be a little hokey but the show moves along nicely.

Dated, Charming, Funny, Entertaining

See it if you still have a chance to see this production with Angela Lansbury. She's the only real reason to see this production, if it still exists.

Don't see it if you don't care for Angela Lansbury, or Noel Coward. It's funny but very dated. (And ultimately kind of forgettable.)

Delightful, Enchanting, Great acting

See it if you have the chance. Angela Landsbury is worth the price of admission to any show.

Don't see it if the production has already closed. Which it has. Sucks to be you.

Entertaining, Clever, Funny, Great acting, Great staging

See it if A funny farce with a plum role in its center in the form of Mme. Arcati. Cast her right and the show hits the mark.

Don't see it if OK it's not laugh-a-minute, and could be a bit creaky, but still worth seeing it. You'll at least leave in good spirits.

Slow, Fluffy, Funny, Dated

See it if you love Angela Lansbury; you want a light comedy

Don't see it if you don't like dated Noel Coward plays

Delightful, Great acting, Hilarious

See it if you love the clever wit of Noel Coward. Seeing the magnificent Angela Lansbury and Christine Ebersole is a real treat.

Don't see it if you don't like to laugh.
