Marilu Henner, Marsha Mason, David Garrison and Lynn Cohen star in Charles Busch's The Tale of the Allergist's Wife, the final production of the 2013 Bucks County Playhouse season, beginning Aug. 15 in New Hope, PA.

Four-time Tony Award winner Boyd Gaines directs Golden Globe nominee Henner ("Taxi," Broadway's The Tale of the Allergist's Wife), Oscar nominee Mason ("Heartbreak Ridge," "The Goodbye Girl," Impressionism), Tony nominee Garrison (A Day in Hollywood/A Night in the Ukraine), Cohen (Ivanov, Orpheus Descending) and Ryan Shams in the limited engagement, which runs through Sept. 1.

This Tony-nominated play by Charles Busch, according to BCP, "follows Marjorie Taub, a middle-aged Upper West Side doctor's wife who is plunged into a mid-life crisis on an epic scale when a former childhood friend reappears."

Other members of the creative team include scenic designer Wilson Chin, costume designer Elizabeth Hope Clancy, lighting designer Travis McHale and sound designer David A. Thomas.
