Think "Bewitched"meets "Sex in the City." Bell, Book and Candle, a stylish romantic comedy by John van Druten that opened on Broadway in 1950 and ran through 233 performances, tells the story of Shepherd Henderson, a guy with everything going for him until he meets Gillian (played by Kate MacCluggage, pictured). She's smart. She's sexy. She casts spells. Does he dump her? Of course not. Mayhem ensues.


Bell, Book and Candle, April 5-29, Hartford Stage, 50 Church St., Hartford, (860) 527-5151,
