Written by Paul Gordon and Jay Gruska,

Directed by Janet Palmer

The new musical, Being Earnest, is based on Oscar Wilde’s satirical comedy of manners, The Importance of Being Earnest. It takes place in a mod, 1960’s, Austin Powers-era setting. All of the brilliant wit in Wilde’s most popular play remains intact in this effervescent musical about two young couples and the societal conventions, over-bearing mothers, and misplaced handbags in railway stations that they must overcome in the course of finding true love. The score is a sparkling homage to 1960’s rock groups such as Herman’s Hermits, The Dave Clark Five, The Rolling Stones, The Lovin’ Spoonful and more.
