the importance of being earnest review
The Importance of Being Earnest is currently playing at the following Broadway Theatre:
During their pursuit of two beautiful women, Algernon Moncrieff and John Worthing create imaginary identities and find themselves entangled in all kinds of ridiculous complications in this satire of class, manners, and romance.
Amanda Leigh Cobb
Brian Bedford (Direction)
Oscar Wilde (Playwright)
Summary Two single gentlemen create imaginary identities for themselves, which, not surprisingly, results in numerous misunderstandings and romantic entanglements in this classic Oscar Wilde comedy of manners.
Age Children under the age of 4 are not permitted in the theatre.
Our Recommendation Well over a century since its London premiere, Wilde's The Importance of Being Earnest is still a delight. Its dry wit and sharp social satire, though firmly grounded in a posh English upper class world that seems long gone, is somehow still timeless. After all, men and women continue to fall in love and constantly misunderstand each other, so maybe nothing has really changed at all. In this Roundabout Theatre Company production, ably directed by Brian Bedford (who also plays Lady Bracknell in drag so good that you might easily mistake him for an actual old woman), Santino Fontana is charmingly cheeky as Algie and David Furr is perfect as his best friend, the earnest John Worthing. Of course one of the chief enjoyments of these revivals are the handsome sets of wealthy homes, and designer Desmond Heeley doesn't disappoint.
