Blithe Spirit, Duke of York’s Theatre

This is perhaps an odd time for Nöel Coward’s comedy about death and supernatural apparitions to land in the West End – Richard Eyre’s revival transferring from Theatre Royal Bath. On the other hand, there’s something comforting about Coward’s wartime … Continue reading
