The hilarious comedy centered around mistaken identity is scheduled for a limited run, closing on July, 3 2011. The highly anticipated stage production of Oscar Wilde's comedic masterpiece about class and name-dropping is already receiving great reviews.

About The Production

The Importance Of Being Earnest tickets for Broadway treat the viewer to wonderful performances. Brian Bedford, who is also the director for the recent production, performs the role of a lifetime playing Lady Bracknell. Though he is not the first male actor to take on the character, he arguably puts forth the best performance of any actor or actress who has tried to step into Bracknell’s formidable shoes. Bracknell is an already over the top character in which Bedford adds new reality as well as impeccable comedic timing. Certainly, a Tony Award winning performance, which is going to be tough to beat this year.

Bedford has also surrounded himself with great talent for this revival. His direction for the show follows the same ambitions he puts forth within his acting. The ability to comprehend, understand and deliver Wilde's hundred year old humor to a new audience is completed with nothing less than perfection. Bedford's work is tuned with fine precision on all aspects. The lush set design of Desmond Heeley exemplifies the period piece while keeping the show fresh and pointed. The Importance Of Being Earnest tickets provide nothing short of a Broadway masterpiece.

The entire company is wonderful to watch. Nothing within the show falls short. Broadway veterans Paxton Whitehead and Dana Ivey as a bumbling minister and an infatuated spinster are utterly delightful. The shallow young objects of affection - Gwendolyn and Cecily - are portrayed by Charlotte Parry and Sara Topham with giddy finesse. David Furr handles the character of sturdily John Worthing gracefully. Santino Fontana playing Algernon is a standout. Fontana has already been impressive with his previous roles as a Brooklyn teen in “Brighton Beach Memoirs” last year and the hot-headed brother in “Billy Elliot.” Fontana's versatility is becoming an eye catching array on the big stage which is sure to garner further notice after this sublime performance.

The Importance Of Being Earnest tickets for this Broadway revival are on sale now at the box office. The production is sure to be one of the biggest hits of the 2011 season. The production is brimming with talent led strongly from Brian Bedford's uncompromising vision. Do yourself a favor and make sure to catch a performance of this comic revival masterpiece.
