Playwright Charles Busch (Die, Mommie, Die!
, Psycho Beach Party
) developed an underground following with campy send-ups of the movie stars of yesteryear. But when he turned to writing about contemporary "Upper West Side matrons," the result was a Tony-nominated smash hit: The Tale of the Allergist's Wife
. Meet Marjorie Taub, typical resident of one of Manhattan's priciest neighborhoods. Despite a wealthy, compassionate husband and all the free time in the world, she's headed straight for the nuthouse. After a meltdown in the Disney Store, Marjorie promptly dives into a midlife crisis. But when an old friend turns up and decides to stay a while, the world of this "Allergist's Wife" is shaken in ways that surprise everyone. Christine Conroy Smith plays Marjorie in this cutting but always clever comedy at the Bowie Playhouse.
