TheatreWorks to Present BEING EARNEST World Premiere Musical, 4/3-28

January 8
5:07 PM 2013


TheatreWorks, the nationally acclaimed theatre of Silicon Valley, presents World Premiere BEING EARNEST, a new musical take on Oscar Wilde's comic masterpiece from Paul Gordon (TheatreWorks' hits Emma, Daddy Long Legs, and Broadway's Jane Eyre) and Grammy and Emmy-nominated songwriter Jay Gruska. Set in 1964 London, this lively and lyrical adaptation moves The Importance of Being Earnest to a bachelor flat near Carnaby Street, where the exuberance of mod fashion, music, and morality inspires a quartet of lovers and incurs the wrath of Lady Bracknell, the cantankerous keeper of tradition's flame.

The show plays previews Wednesday, April 3 to Friday, April 5, 2013, with the press opening slated for Saturday, April 6, 2013. The production runs through Sunday, April 28, 2013.

Tuesdays and Wednesdays: 7:30 PM
Thursdays and Fridays: 8:00 PM
Saturdays: 2:00 PM, 8:00 PM
Sundays: 2:00 PM, 7:00 PM
