The short tour of The Importance of Being Earnest has just started, in advance of it transferring to the West End. We are booked into Malvern Theatre on 27th March, at 2.30pm, to see it and the show is a sell-out. The reviews are excellent - even for the opening night, when productions are sometimes still in need of some tweaking. Not this one!
Adrian Noble, the Director, has his actors speaking the lines with respect and clarity so that nothing is lost. David Suchet and Michele Dotrice come in for special praise but the rest of the cast are also given excellent notices.
All in all, we seem to be in for a masterful production of a classic comedy.
By the way, we have been advised that the running time for this show is 2 hrs, including one 20 minute interval.
