Small selection of drinks sold. We went to Las Brisas afterwards - great way to end an already great day.

The Tale of the Allergist’s Wife

centers on Marjorie Taub, a middle-aged Upper West Side doctor’s wife, who is devoted to mornings at the Whitney, afternoons at MOMA and 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 and somewhat mysterious childhood friend.

After a successful run Off-Broadway, The Tale of the Allergist’s Wife played Broadway’s Ethel Barrymore Theatre 777 performances. The play received three 2001 Tony nominations, include one for Best Play.
