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

Incredible talent: both female leads & Troy. Love watching Bo Mellinger! Music isn't memorable, and the volume on the dissonant pieces was wearing (as it surely must have been on the ears & vocal cords of the performers!) Staging & sets innovative. First half lengthy, second act sweeping. Would recommend to ardent theater goers who appreciate comfort edges being pushed.
Due to very adult situations, The Wild Party is recommended for those age 14 or older.
Sound Theatre Company presents the Seattle premiere of The Wild Party, with book, music and lyrics by Andrew Lippa, based on the 1928 epic poem by Joseph Moncure March about the excesses of the Jazz Age. A group of burlesque performers join together for a wild, erotic evening in a Manhattan apartment that will push the limits of their decadent and thrill-seeking high living.
