The Boca Raton Theatre Guild has assembled an all star cast for their upcoming production of The Tale of the Allergist’s Wife. The award-winning comedy, which will open at the Willow Theatre in Boca Raton’s Sugar Sand Park on November 4th, is one of playwright Charles Busch’s most successful plays – it ran on Broadway for over two years. Award-winning actors Patti Gardner, Barbara Sloan, Iris Acker, and Michael Beecher have all signed on to bring Busch’s characters to life.
The Tale of the Allergist’s Wife is a comedic exploration of the Upper West side life of Marjorie Taub – middle-aged and middle-class – her loving husband, Ira, and her daily routines at Zabar’s and the 92nd Street “Y.” Marjorie’s mother lives down the hall obsessing constantly about her digestive tract; her beloved therapist has just died; and she loses it in a Disney store. Unexpectedly invading her depression is her flamboyant childhood friend Lee who becomes entrenched in the Taub household as a seemingly permanent guest, not only drawing Marjorie out of her dark mood, but affecting her marriage as well.
The Tale of the Allergist’s Wife will run from November 4th through November 20th. Performances are: Wednesday – Saturday at 8:00 p.m., and Saturdays and Sundays at 2:00 p.m. The Willow Theatre in Sugar Sand Park is located at 300 South Military Trail in Boca Raton, just south of Palmetto Park Road. Tickets for The Tale of the Allergist’s Wife are $18 and are on sale now. Tickets can be purchased at the Willow Theatre Box office: 561-347-3948.
