About This Show

Between the Whitney, BAM and Saks, who has time for a nervous breakdown? Just ask Mrs. Marjorie Taub.
Charles Busch?s play chronicles the spiritual turmoil of Marjorie Taub, a middle-aged Upper West Side doyenne, and how her life changes when a stranger from the past arrives on her doorstep.
This is The Tale of the Allergist?s Wife, Busch?s razor sharp new Broadway comedy directed by Lynne Meadow. As portrayed by the extraordinary Rhea Perlman, Marjorie is a woman we all know, brought to hilarious life in a way we?ve never seen. Richard Kind also stars as her highly accomplished husband and Marilu Henner returns to the Broadway stage as Marjorie?s mysterious best friend.
