Genre: Comedy
Written by John Van Druten, Directed by Phil Ruvelas

Ground UP Productions, the award-winning company behind terrific revivals of Barefoot in the Park, Burn This and Pump Boys and Dinettes, brings you the classic comedy Bell, Book, & Candle.

Smart and sexy Gillian Holroyd is a New York City resident and potent witch, but now she longs for a taste of a different sort of magic. Enter her new tenant Shep Henderson. He is attractive and resoundingly normal … everything she wants to try on and see if she likes. Even better, he is engaged to her old college nemesis and a little revenge spices things up nicely. Little does she understand the powerful spell she has cast on them both. Enchanting and charmingly funny, this mid-century bewitching romantic comedy is sure to beguile!
