Two-time Academy Award nominee, Grammy Award, Tony Award and Golden Globe winner Bette Midler (First Wives ClubHocus Pocus) will join Academy Award, Golden Globe and Emmy winner/nominee Sharon Stone (Basic Instinct, Mosaic) to star in the film version of Charles Busch’s Tony-nominated Broadway play, The Tale of the Allergist’s Wife. The film will be directed by Andy Fickman (Parental Guidance, Game Plan). IMR will commence foreign sales at the EFM in Berlin.

In The Tale of the Allergist’s Wife, Midler will play Marjorie Taub, an upper-middle-class, Upper-West-Sider in the midst of a volcanic later-life crisis. Her loving husband, acclaimed allergist to the homeless, Dr. Ira Taub, tries in vain to help. But everything changes with the arrival in New York of Marjorie’s fascinating and mysterious childhood friend, Lee (Stone). Lee has led the glamorous, globe-trotting life that Marjorie dreamed of. As Lee becomes the Taubs’ permanent houseguest, Marjorie’s depression magically lifts. But Lee has a secret agenda that leads to a wild and unexpected turn.
