Theatre Rhinoceros, San Francisco’s groundbreaking queer stage company, has teamed up with the GLBT History Museum to present “Rhino in the Castro,” a series of readings of plays reflecting the LGBTQ community and our allies. The museum provides the space, and Rhino provides the scripts and actors. This month’s offering is “Blithe Spirit,” a classic 1941 comedy by gay author and celebrated wit Sir Noël Coward. The play centers on a fussy novelist, Charles Condomine, remarried but haunted by the ghost of his late first wife whose spirit is conjured up by a visiting “happy medium,” Madame Arcati. The Rhino’s reading discovers the queer connotations between the lines.
