Playwright Charles Busch developed an underground following with his campy send-ups of the movie stars of yesteryear in shows like Psycho Beach Party and Die, Mommie, Die! But when he turned to writing about contemporary "Upper West Side matrons," the result was the Tony-nominated hit The Tale of the Allergist's Wife. Meet Marjorie Taub, a typical resident of one of Manhattan's priciest neighborhoods. Despite a wealthy, compassionate husband and all the free time in the world, she's headed straight for the nuthouse. After a meltdown in the Disney Store, Marjorie promptly dives into a midlife crisis. But when an enigmatic old friend turns up and decides to stay a while, the world of this "Allergist's Wife" is shaken in ways that surprise everyone.
