A raucous comedy from Charles Busch, one of America’s most outrageous playwrights! New York dilettante Marjorie Taub, a middle-aged doctor’s wife, is hooked on culture—mornings at the Whitney, afternoons at MOMA, 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 childhood friend. The New York Times says, “The Tale of the Allergist’s Wife earns its wall-to-wall laughs”.

Directed by Charles Busch. Recorded before a live audience at the Skirball Cultural Center, Los Angeles in May of 2007.
