Just like the mischievous ghost Elvira, Noël Coward’s 1941 comedy keeps coming back for a reason. Blithe Spirit, delightful as ever, takes up residence on the City Lights stage from March 23-April 23. When novelist Charles invites the eccentric medium Madame Arcati over for a séance to help shake his writer’s block, she conjures up his late wife. And Elvira is happy to stir up a little trouble – especially with Charles’ current marriage. Featuring City Lights Executive Artistic Director Lisa Mallette as Madame Arcati.
Masks are recommended at most performances and required on April 15, 20 and 23. Want to sport a City Lights T-shirt, too? Buy one online and pick it up at the theater!

Our season continues in May with the beautiful play The River Bride, based on Brazilian folklore; followed by our splashy, dancey summer musical Kinky Boots! Check out our concerts and special events, too.
