the Importance of Being Earnest


Took my niece to see this classic Oscar Wilde play at the Ahmanson in downtown LA. Peter Hall's royal bath company with Lynn Redgrave were quite good in this witty romp. The charm and cynicism of this drawing room comedy lives on despite its triviality and utter lack of relevancy to anything significant.

One especially endearing element is the great importance the two young women place on the name of their future husband's being "Earnest", not Jack or Algy. "Earnest" is so confidence inspiring!

Truly love is in the mind of the smitten.
