Stages Repertory Theatre presents The Spiritualist
Stages Repertory Theatre will present the regional premiere of The Spiritualist. Rosemary Dunn is an English widow who cooks for the school lunch service and communes with the spirits of dead composers (Liszt is her favorite). When a crusading American newspaperman tries to unmask her as a fraud, the so-called “spiritualist” channels a famous rock star to prove that great music is eternal.
A comic drama inspired by true events, The Spiritualist explores the tensions between art and commerce, fact and faith.
