IBSEN'S GHOST: First Performance This Tuesday!



On Tuesday, January 16th, George Street Playhouse will present the world premiere of Tony®-nominee and drag legend Charles Busch's latest play—Ibsen's Ghost

This irresponsible biographical fantasy tells a tall (and hilarious) tale of the legendary Norwegian playwright's wife Suzannah the week after the great man's state funeral. A fierce keeper of the flame, Suzannah is confronted with a series of predicaments: her husband's long lost illegitimate son, his former protégé peddling a libelous diary and an enigmatic rodent exterminator known as The Rat Wife. This is the play Ibsen never wrote but with more laughs and a happy ending.With Charles Busch starring as Ibsen's widow in the show, the all-star cast includes Christopher Borg (The Confession of Lily Dare), Jen Cody (Princess & The Frog, Shrek The Musical), Thomas Gibson (Dharma & Greg, Criminal Minds), Two Time Tony®-winner Judy Kaye (Phantom of the Opera, Diana), and Jennifer Van Dyck (Madam Secretary, Law & Order).

Now is your chance to experience this world premiere play with this sensational cast!
