"It's not often we get to see Coward plays anymore, but this comedy makes for a fun evening in the theater. There may be no Santa Claus or Scrooge in this play, but Artists Rep's "Blithe Spirit" should fit nicely into the holiday plans of many Portlanders — at least those who desire spirited urbane comedy spiced with warm-hearted laughter for their cold winter nights." - Richard Wattenberg, The Oregonian.

"Stylistically, it is Coward's masterpiece: his most complete success in imposing his own view of things on the brute facts of existence." - The Times, 1976
"With Hay Fever and Private Lives, Blithe Spirit strikes me as being one of Coward 's three indisputable comic masterpieces. [It is] the outrageous frivolity with which Coward treats mortality that makes the piece so bracing." - The Daily Telegraph, 2004
