Coming This Weekend: High Spirits!

I've spent years hoping that Encores! would bring back the Noel Coward musical High Spirits (based on Blithe Spirit), but it looks like Musicals in Mufti got the jump on the City Center revivalists—and I'll take it.

The production, to be performed this weekend, features Carol Kane as well as ... I'm a fan of both the British and United States cast albums (and I was weaned on Petula Clark's cover of the song "You'd Better Love Me," which was the B-side of "Downtown"), so I'm really looking forward to finding out how the show plays, even in the scaled-down version I can expect from Musicals in Mufti. [UPDATE June 12, 2009 It looks like the production is now sold out.]

Here's Lena Horne covering "You'd Better Love Me."
