My rating isn't really for the quality of performance or production. Theatreworks reliably puts on professional shows of high quality, and the MVCPA is an excellent venue - great sight lines, easy to get to, plenty of dining opportunities nearby....continued

Acomplished the near impossible by being light-weight and leaden at the same time. The only bright spots were when Maureen McVerry was onstage as Lady Bracknell

The play is based on Oscar Wilde's wonderful "The importance of being Earnest" and it is very true to the source, with additional musical numbers. I was a bit reluctant at first, but I must say that the experience was very enjoyable and the cast...continued

Very enjoyable, with a something less than distinguished score. The book, which retains as much of Wilde as possible, is as funny as you'd expect if you're familiar with the source material. The score is pleasant enough, but very repetitive...continued

I absolutely loved this play. It was very engrossing and the music was catchy. I thought about buying another ticket so I could see it again.

I really enjoyed this play. It is funny and witty. The voices of the players blend wonderfully and many of the lyrics are hilarious.

The show was brilliant! Enjoyed every moment of it :-) The theater is very clean and free parking in the basement level. There are plenty of restaurants within the walking distance for pre-theatre meal, and a nice cafe just by the theatre too. ...continued

The Importance of Being Earnest is one of my all-time favorite plays. This new musical version does it sufficient justice. A semi-modern take with a kitschy up-beat score. The actors were, with limited exception, superb and the singing was spot...continued

It was a cute show - sometimes English accents a little hard to understand. Lady Bracknell was the best - I loved her clothes. The other costumes were also great.

Facilities were very nice, seating was in center balcony. The introduction commentary was a little hard to hear, however, going forward, it got much better. Performers were good. Parking was a breeze in all the surrounding areas.
