The Importance of Being Earnest @ UH
THE IMPORTANCE OF BEING EARNEST plays for five more shows, beginning tonight, in the Jose Quintero Theatre at the U. of Houston. I enjoyed director Jonathan Gonzalez's work with a cast made up primarily of MFA Acting students (though two undergrads are very funny as butlers,) who make choices that are not necessarily traditional, but do tell the story. Jack may be a bit dark and a wee-too naturalistic (which does make sense, considering the point in training in which the first-year MFA students find themselves now), but Lady Bracknell is hilariously nuts.
