Being Earnest, but wearing go-go boots.  Tony Nominee Paul Gordon and Grammy/Emmy nominee Jay Gruska have transformed Wilde's Victorian era play into a mod masterpiece set on Carnaby Street in 1965.  The score pays homage to the likes of The Beatles, The Kinks, The Who, and The Bee Gees, while the script crackles with the witty Wilde-isms.  Will it make the local English teacher clutch their pearls, or Beatles-fan with delight?  It's anyone's guess...

“Purists of the original classic will be scandalized."  – Talkin’ Broadway

You may want to see this one more than once before it takes Broadway by storm.  It's great fun, and great humor, and adds up to a terrific evening.” --  Mountain View Voice

“The songs are breezy and toe-tapping and often very successful at advancing the plot. The beauty in the songs also help give this a more mass appeal, reaching a larger audience than even the source material could.”  -- Examiner.com
