About this show

The Tale of the Allergist's Wife is a rare foray into the smart and sophisticated humor of Charles Busch, with a simple premise of keeping one's family together. Marjorie Taub is saddled with an overzealous philanthropic husband, a self-loathing bowel-obsessed mother and a crumbling sense of intellectual stimulation. But then an exuberant woman appears at her door and plants a seed of self-discovery and Marjorie is pushed to the edge of reality. This hysterical, yet sophisticated, comedy is a vibrant tale of new beginnings and a rediscovery of oneself.
