There are numerous chances to see some of theater’s biggest stars, sometimes in unusual settings, in the coming weeks.

It’s always a delight to have the inimitable Charles Busch on stage, especially in one of his own plays. That’s what’s happening now at 59E59 Theatres where Busch’s new work, “Ibsen’s Ghost” runs through April 14. Playing Ibsen’s widow Susannah, who sets out to preserve her husband’s legacy by any means necessary, Busch is joined onstage by such first-rate co-stars as Thomas Gibson, Jen Cody, Christopher Borg, Judy Kaye and Jennifer Van Dyck.
