Guthrie Theater’s Blithe Spirit

Veteran actress Sally Wingert is back for another entertaining performance. Sally is in the Guthrie Theater’s production of “Blithe Spirit”. The show is described as a high spirited comedy. It’s about a man and his wife who are hosting a séance with Sally’s character. Sally plays an eccentric medium known as Madame Arcati. It turns into an interesting evening with a supernatural turn. Reporter Emily Engberg sat down with Sally and real life medium Jodi Livon. Jodi is a regular guest on Twin Cities Live. Jodi says Sally is perfect for this role because of her own intuitions. Both women sat and chatted about Jodi’s experiences as a medium and how some of those moments may even relate to the show. Jodi says she senses some real life spirits around the Guthrie Theater. The Guthrie always has a variety of shows going on. “Blithe Spirit” is the “other” holiday show. The Guthrie is known for “A Christmas Carol”, but this show is a good complement to that holiday classic. This one brings comedy to the stage. It also just so happens to be a fun fit because of the spirits that are around for the holidays. After all, the ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Future are a part of “A Christmas Carol”. The spirits of Elvira and Ruth are part of “Blithe Spirit”. To learn more about the show and to get tickets, click here.
