The Importance of Being Earnest - The Front Row Center
I used to love going to see Shakespeare in the park until it became a career trying to get a ticket. There’s something compelling about seeing theater outdoors. Perhaps it’s the Ancient Greek in my Jewish soul. Last night I fell in love again with theater in Central Park when I saw NY Classical Theatre’s production of Oscar Wilde’s "The Importance of Being Earnest." There’s nothing more satisfying, and nothing more quintessentially NYC than sitting on the grass with others in the know, enjoying the wonderful weather, the idyllic backdrop of a body of water framed with drooping trees, and a talented troupe of actors performing a witty, erudite piece of classical theater.
