After over three quarters of a century as America’s favorite gothic farce, Arsenic and Old Lace continues to sparkle with sweet little old ladies ladling out arsenic-spiced blackberry wine to lonely and elderly boarders, a touch of romance challenged by justifiable fears of inherited family insanity, plenty of word play and dramatic irony, and boodles of bodies buried in the basement.
Don’t miss the laughter and suspense. (But between acts forgo ordering the blackberry wine.)
