The Importance of Being Earnest


When I was in college I saw my first production of "The Importance of Being Earnest," by Oscar Wilde.  I remember laughing until tears ran down my cheeks. I've seen several other productions since then and have found it equally funny each time. I'm not sure how a play that is celebrating it's 120th anniversary holds up so well, but I venture that it's a combination of great writing and a wildly absurd premise.

Tomorrow night Fathom Events will be showing an all-star English cast of this classic and wonderful comedy in theaters throughout America. Once again, I can't dance at two weddings and I will be attending my Tuesday night class. I am so sorry not to see this production and can only hope that it will be shown again. Please check the link for the theater nearest to you.  

I'm recovering from the Mets' loss, but definitely appreciating the extraordinary playing of the Kansas City Royals.  Now, how many days until spring training?

It's a busy Buttercup day and I plan to be back later tonight for Fiction Monday Fun.

As ever, thanks for visiting and take very good care.

Please note: I was offered review tickets from Fathom Events, but the opinions are all mine.

It would be nice to see this play sometime.

Enjoy your class, and stay warm.

Buttercup, For many years we bought vip tickets to the dinner theater in Indianapolis....we have not been going for about 3 years now and I miss it. I know it's not Broadway...but hey it's still theater. Glad you can see plays so often. Blessings, xoxo,Susie

I am having a bit of "baseball withdrawal!" I really wasn't ready for the season to be finished! You have many top-notch opportunities in NYC! Sorry you will not be able to "dance at both weddings.":-)

That would be such a great show to catch. My middle Rebekah is always looking for bargains and she says because of my age, we can get some great deals on popular shows coming to town. She is a good kid, taking us to see the Trans Siberian Orchestra woo hoo

Have a great week.
