Production Sponsored by by Steven & Stephanie Wasser

A middle-aged Upper-West-Side doctor’s wife is devoted to mornings at the Whitney, afternoons at MOMA, and evenings at BAM. Plunged into a mid-life crisis of Medea-like proportions, she’s shaken out of her lethargy by the reappearance of a fascinating and somewhat mysterious childhood friend.  Filled with passion and humor, the New York Times called The Tale of the Allergist’s Wife a “window-rattling comedy of mid-life malaise.”

 “Uproarious . . . earns its wall-to-wall laughs." — New York Times

 "Charles Busch comes of age as a comic playwright of the first rank." — New York Daily News
