The Importance of Being Earnest

One-Night-Only Benefit Reading

November 18, 2019 | 7:30PM

American Airlines Theatre

 

        

Angela Lansbury stars in a one-night-only Benefit Reading of Oscar Wilde’s “trivial comedy for serious people.” 

Two wealthy London bachelors each pretend to be a fictitious man called Ernest in order to win over two eligible young ladies, despite the ladies' avowed preference for that name alone—and the interference of the intimidatingly proper Lady Bracknell (Lansbury).

Proceeds from The Importance of Being Earnest will benefit Roundabout’s many programs, including Education at Roundabout.
