Bette Midler and Sharon Stone to star in The Tale of the Allergist’s Wife
Bette Midler and Sharon Store have signed on to co-star in the odd-couple comedy The Tale of the Allergist’s Wife, based on the play of the same name.
Andy Flickman (“Game Plan”) will direct.
The story centers on Marjorie Taub, an upper-middle-class, Upper-West-Sider, in the midst of a later-life crisis. Her loving husband, an acclaimed allergist to the homeless, tries in vain to help, but everything changes with the arrival in New York of Marjorie’s fascinating and mysterious childhood friend Lee. As Lee becomes the Taubs’ permanent houseguest, Marjorie’s depression magically lifts — but Lee has a secret agenda.
