The Importance of Being Earnest

Off-Broadway
Comedy
Drama
Presented by New York Classical Theatre

At every other performance, the entire cast switches genders & roles. Join us as we ask, "Who really wears the pants in 19th century England?"

SYNOPSIS: Two wealthy London bachelors each pretend to be a fictitious man called Earnest in order to win over two eligible young ladies, despite the ladies' avowed preference for that name alone — and the interference of the intimidatingly proper Lady Bracknell — in Oscar Wilde's "trivial comedy for serious people."

Directed by Stephen Burdman

Starring Ademide Akintilo, Kristen Calgaro, Connie Castanzo, Jed Peterson, Kate Goehring, John Michalski, Tina Stafford, and Clay Storseth

Show Times: Tuesdays-Sundays @7pm
