In Tony-nominated playwright Charles Busch’s latest comedy, Olive and the Bitter Herbs, actress Olive Fisher sees a ghost in her mirror, but that’s the least of her problems. Her radiator’s broken, the couple next door stink up her apartment with exotic cheeses, and the highlight of her long career was a sausage commercial in the ’80s. While she’s not the most popular tenant, her neighbors invite themselves over and she finds herself hosting a Passover Seder. But are Olive’s guests there to see her or the mysterious man in her mirror? Olive and the Bitter Herbs is a comedy about connecting to the people in our lives—those with us and those who have passed on.

 

Tues-Thurs 7, Fri-Sat 8, Sat 2, Wed 2 (August 24 & 31), Sun 3 (July 31; August 7, 14 & 21)

RUN TIME: 2 hours including a 15-minute intermission.
