Bri­tish Com­edy

Where San Francisco - - Entertainment -

Stage and screen legend An­gela Lans­bury kicks off the New Year in San Francisco as she re­turns to her Tony Award-win­ning role as Madame Ar­cati in a new pro­duc­tion of “Blithe Spirit.” Michael Blake­more’s re­vival of Noel Coward’s most popular com­edy has al­ready sold out on Broad­way and London’s West End, and the show is only in town for a limited twoweek en­gage­ment. It will play the in­ti­mate, 1600-seat Golden Gate The­atre. The story fol­lows a writer re­search­ing his next novel who turns to the medium Madame Ar­cati for in­spi­ra­tion. After a séance, he is haunted by the ghost of his dead wife, who has her own plans for the fu­ture of the writer’s cur­rent mar­riage. —ZC SHN Golden Gate The­atre, 1 Tay­lor St.,
