Cheap Blithe Spirit tickets at the Gielgud Theatre
Returning to the London stage for the first time in nearly 40 years, the inimitable Angela Lansbury reunites with acclaimed director Michael Blakemore to reprise her Tony Award-winning Broadway performance as Madame Arcati in Blithe Spirit.
Opening at the Gielgud Theatre on 18 March 2014, with previews from 1 March, this new production of Noël Coward’s sharp comedy of social mores also stars Janie Dee and Charles Edwards.
In order to observe a spiritualist first-hand for a planned novel, writer Charles Condomine (Charles Edwards) and wife Ruth (Janie Dee) invite friends the Bradmans to dinner and a séance with local clairvoyant Madame Arcati (Angela Lansbury), whom they are certain is a fake.
That all changes when the ghost of his first wife Elvira is summoned. Elvira overstays her welcome in the following days, causing a rift between Charles and his at-first disbelieving, then jealous second wife. The feuding wives, ghostly and mortal, plot to sabotage Charles' existence and each other’s. But who will succeed?

Choose your seats from the plan of the Gielgud Theatre above. If you're making your first visit to a theatre or you're simply unsure about where you'd most like to be seated, here's a quick guide to help you choose:

The Gielgud Theatre is situated on Shaftesbury Avenue in the West End of London, close to Piccadilly Circus tube station. Built in 1906, this 970 seat venue once staged a production written by Winston Churchill's mother.
The first production at the Gielgud Theatre was the musical comedy The Beauty of Bath, which opened on December 27 1906.
If you would like to make a new booking for The Curious Incident of the Dog then the show is now on sale at the Gielgud Theatre.Among the countless notable shows to have graced this venerable West End theatre’s stage since then are There’s a Girl in My Soup, Kismet, Fallen Angels, The Importance of Being Earnest, The Rear Column, Design for Living, An Ideal Husband and Daisy Pulls it Off.
Today, the Gielgud Theatre enjoys consistent success and has won widespread acclaim as an eclectic venue that stages revivals of classics and contemporary productions as well as fostering new work.
The Gielgud has undergone numerous changes of identity during its long history. The theatre was originally called the Hicks Theatre after actor, manager and playwright Seymour Hicks. After a change in management in 1909 it was renamed the Globe Theatre.
Extensive refurbishments caused the theatre to close in 1987, with extensive work carried out on the gold leaf in the theatre’s auditorium.
In the Noughties the theatre was renamed the Gielgud Theatre in honour of actor Sir John Gielgud, so as to avoid confusion ahead of the (re)opening of Shakespeare’s Globe.
Refurbishments were again undertaken on the theatre in 2007, when both the exterior and interior were restored. The Gielgud reopened in January 2008.
The layout, size and atmosphere of the Gielgud Theatre make it the perfect place to see drama, comedy and small scale musicals. Recent successes include Frost/Nixon, Equus, God of Carnage, Avenue Q, Hair, The Lady Killers and Chariots of Fire.
Whatever you decide to see at the Gielgud Theatre, we wish you an entertaining and rewarding visit.
