Under the direction of Tony winner Jack Hofsiss (The Elephant Man), Van Druten's play will officially open June 6 and run through June 28. It is the first main stage production on the Bay Street summer bill.

Bell, Book & Candle, according to Bay Street, "is set in Manhattan's East Side, where a witch thinks her buttoned-down neighbor is perfectly fine but can't stand his fiancé. She decides to use magic to stop her neighbor from marrying, until she is confronted with an unexpected twist."

The production has set design by Gary Hygom, costume design by Toni Leslie-James, lighting design by Paul Miller and sound design by Jill B.C. DuBoff.
