Charles Busch

Published by Grove Press

Charles Busch is renowned for weaving popular culture, wicked camp humor, and biting social satire into an unusual and uproarious theatrical signature that has earned him the Outer Critics' John Gassner Award for Playwrighting and a Drama Desk Award for Best Play nomination

Of his latest play, The New York Times has written, "Uproarious ... wall-to-wall laughs . . . Mr Busch has swum straight into the mainstream and stays comfortably afloat there"

Busch is the author of such plays as Vampire Lesbians of Sodom - one of the longest-running plays in Off-Broadway history - and Psycho Beach Party, a cross between Gidget and Spellbound

After a successful Off-Broadway run at New York City's Manhattan Theater Club, Busch moves to Broadway with The Tale of the Allergist's Wife, a hilarious comedy about a self-absorbed Upper West Side doctor's wife whose life is devoted to mornings at the Whitney, afternoons at the Museum of Modern Art, and evenings at the Brooklyn Academy of Music

Her world is shaken and transformed when a childhood friend makes an unexpected visit
