The importance of being earnest
I’m so excited to return to the Ebenezer Maxwell Mansion to portray Algernon Moncrieff in The Importance of Being Earnest!
Filled with a cast of colorful characters and endlessly witty dialogue, The Importance of Being Earnest is Oscar Wilde’s crowning comedic achievement. In this site specific staging at the Ebenezer Maxwell Mansion, the audience will be immersed in a world of delightful farce where no one is exactly who they seem to be. One of the most popular plays of all time, this production will reimagine Wilde’s hilarious “trivial comedy for serious people” for a contemporary audience of all ages.
Bringing this production to Philadelphia has been a dream of mine since I first listened to the score. Now, I’ll be co-directing it and performing the Gelsey track!
Reverberating through time and reality, four friends break a camera, scream about the apocalypse, weave tales, betray each other, and drink whiskey. Ghost Quartet is an anachronistic song cycle about whether ghosts exist, and how they do even for the non-believers.
