BOOKING NOW OPEN FOR "THE IMPORTANCE OF BEING EARNEST"
Christopher Morahan's production of The Importance of Being Earnest, by Oscar Wilde, which had a run at the Haymarket earlier this year, is now confirmed as opening at the Savoy theatre on 23rd Jan 01, following previews from 17th Jan 01. (Booking is now open!)
The show returns to the West End (where it played at the Haymarket theatre in the summer)having toured in Australia and New Zealand.
The show will return with only one member of the original cast, Patricia Routledge as 'Lady Bracknell'.
The show will also have a short run at the Malvern Theatres, in Malvern, from 8th to 13th Jan 01 , before its West End return.
This production received good notices from the popular press, at its last West End outing... THE TIMES says, "Morahan gives us a decently acted, neatly detailed, thoroughly enjoyable production. " THE EVENING STANDARD says, "Though staid, his production is thoroughly enjoyable and has flashes of brilliance: among them the odd linguistic lapse from Routledge's subdued Lady B, which reveal her fortune-hunting instincts." DOMINIC CAVENDISH of TIME OUT says, "Style is something you'd imagine any production of such a frequently rehashed play would hanker after, but there is a surprising amount of slovenliness in this lively Chichester Festival transfer." ALEXA BARACAIA of THE STAGE says, " Christopher Morahan's production was neat and accomplished, yet largely unremarkable. It worked because it is a perfectly crafted comic masterpiece - but thanks for that must go to Wilde." THE FINANCIAL TIMES says, "From start to finish, this production is a happy, happy time in the theatre."
