‘Ernest in Love’

The Importance of Being Earnest is near-universally recognized as one of the funniest plays in the English language. So it seems the only way to improve upon it is to add music. Ernest in Love presents the plot of Oscar Wilde’s original, with two young aristocrats prevented from marrying their loves by the trivialities of Victorian society forced to use their wits to prove their worth. The musical addendums only heighten the fun, as will the antagonistic role of Lady Bracknell — played in this production by the irrepressible Angela Iannone.
