The Importance Of Being Earnest

James Marsters stars in Oscar Wilde's "The Importance of Being Earnest", a stylish send-up of Victorian courtship and manners, complete with assumed names, mistaken lovers, and a lost handbag.  Jack and Algernon are best friends, both wooing ladies who think their names are Earnest, “that name which inspires absolute confidence.”  Wilde’s effervescent wit, scathing social satire, and high farce make this one of the most cherished plays in the English language. Also starring Emily Bergl, Charles Busch, Neil Dickson, Jill Gascoine, Christopher Neame, Matthew Wolf, and  Sarah Zimmerman.
