An award-winning hit at the Manhattan Theatre Club and on Broadway, _The Tale of the Allergist’s Wife _is a must-see comedy! Caroline Aaron stars as Marjorie Taub, the wife of a philanthropic allergist, who is engulfed in a life crisis of Medea like proportions. Her children are grown, her beloved therapist died recently and her mother grates on her nerves. She tries to lose herself in a world of art-galleries, foreign films and avant-garde theatre, but finds she is barely able to rouse herself from her sofa. Marjorie’s spirits suddenly soar when Lee Green (*Marilu Henner *recreating her Broadway role) appears on her doorstep and turns her world upside down.

This comedy contains adult language and situations.
