Oscar Wilde was a writer with brilliance to burn, but even he never surpassed The Importance of Being Earnest, perhaps the wittiest, cleverest and looniest play to ever grace the stage. Called a "trivial comedy for serious people," Wilde's masterpiece finds two young bachelors, Jack Worthing and Algernon Moncrieff, taking on the same "Ernest" alias in hopes of wooing their ladies. The scheme, of course, goes comically awry. The formidable Lady Bracknell is then brought in to help sort things out. Revived numerous times on Broadway -- most recently in 2011 -- Earnest was also adapted into a 2002 film with Oscar winners Reese Witherspoon and Colin Firth. Now Victor Pappas, the world-renowned director, helms an exciting new production for the Seattle Shakespeare Company. Learn More

It is hard to put a novel of this length and complexity on the stage, but I think Book-It did a fine job. The didactic monologues were kept to a minimum, but still slowed the pace and made the play over-long, however. The actress who played Anna was absolutely perfect and every scene with her was enthralling. Costumes and stage were well done. The ice skating scene was remarkably effective.
In the highest circles of Russian society, an unexpected encounter finds the beautiful Anna Karenina and dashing Count Vronsky desperately, madly in love. Tolstoy’s classic smolders with passion and unfulfilled desire.
