Reviews: Blithe Spirit at the Gielgud Theatre, London - March 2014

"The comedy is reinforced by the excellent Janie Dee, who lends Ruth an air of steely ferocity…and it's a sign of Coward's theatricality that a simple line such as Ruth's statement about Elvira – "My husband has driven her into Folkestone" – can still raise the roof." Michael Billington, The Guardian


"The bickering ménage a trois is exceptionally well played here…As Ruth, his managing, tidy-minded second wife, Janie Dee is delectably waspish and distraught." Paul Taylor, The Independent


"Janie Dee, as his extant wife Ruth, manages to convey great dignity in her predicament." Tim Walker, The Telegraph 


"The languidly beguiling Dee as a seductive and demanding Ruth…" Michael Coveney, Whatsonstage
