How was your experience?
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 on. The audio was the crispest I have ever heard in that theatre. Perfect clarity above live musicians is hard to achieve in a musical in a small house, and this was expertly mixed. The set was inspired, (if a little too purple) and the scene changes instantaneous! A great night of theatre for the Wilde fans.
