It doesn’t matter whether your preference at
teatime is for cake or muffins. You’ll be pleased with Cincinnati
Shakespeare’s production of Oscar Wilde’s The Importance of Being Earnest,
full of sweets and bon mots.
When Oscar Wilde wrote The Importance of Being Earnest
back in 1895, he subtitled it “A Trivial Comedy for Serious People.”
That’s an apt description for a show still produced with frequency 117
years later — and as funny as ever.
