On Thursdays, January 28 and February 4, YPL’s Adult Readers Theater will shine the spotlight on Bell, Book, and Candle, a comedy by John Van Druten.
The play focuses on Gillian, a 27-year-old witch living in Manhattan who is attracted to her neighbor, Shepherd, a book publisher. When Gillian casts a spell on Shepherd, comedy ensues. The original 1950 Broadway production, which featured Rex Harrison and Lilli Palmer, was a huge success and spawned a well-known 1958 film starring James Stewart, Kim Novak, and Jack Lemmon. The play also influenced the popular 1960s TV series Bewitched.
Join us via videoconference or conference call to play a character in (or simply listen to) Bell, Book and Candle. This is a fun way to gather together — no lines to memorize, no acting experience necessary. For more information, contact Phil at 914-779-3774.
