'Bart [Sher] and I spoke a long time about this character. I think the key to him is that he is passionate and obsessive about the work and his job. What's he's not good at is emotions- understanding other people's emotions and understanding his own emotions,' says Harry Hadden-Paton. 'The joy of an being an actor is taking someone on a journey. Now I'm digging my heals and making him cruel, patronizing and self-obsessed, then taking him on a journey of self-discovery that has come about through [Eliza].'

It's finally here! After weeks of dedicated, detailed work and long, long hours, the efforts of all of our very talented company members have come together to create nothing short of a magical final product. Tennessee Rep's The Importance of Being Earnest has officially opened to stellar reviews and raving audiences and those who joined us before the show on opening night were given a little something extra to rave about. Our traditional opening night event, First Night Supper Club, was transformed for The Importance of Being Earnest into First Night Backstage. The set is on the biggest revolve sets Tennessee Rep has ever used and to accommodate it the stage and seating bank orientation of Johnson Theater was flipped 180 degrees from the normal orientation Tennessee Rep uses for our productions. This flip created a bigger more accessible backstage area than we normally have which afforded us the ability to offer a unique opportunity.
