About this show

An award-winning hit at the Manhattan Theatre Club and on Broadway, The Tale of the Allergist's Wife concerns 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 played by Marilu Henner (reprising her acclaimed Broadway performance), as a fascinating and somewhat mysterious friend from her childhood appears on her doorstep.
