Blithe Spirit at the Metropolitan
Until November 9th, this play will have showtimes on Fridays and Saturdays at 7:00 pm, and Sundays at 2:00 pm at the historic Metropolitan in San Andreas. This play has a comedic and spooky plot about a writer who holds a seance in order to get ideas for his writing, and in the process accidentally becomes haunted by the ghost of his first wife. The haunting causes increasingly troublesome problems between him and his current wife. Light enough for the brave child, this play is a fun way to spend a weekend evening or afternoon.
