Mistaken identity, lies, wordplay, and now ... disco? Oscar Wilde's hit 1895 play The Importance of Being Earnest is his most popular and enduring work thanks to its colorful characters and the farcical disaster they create through a series of deceptions and misunderstandings. Director Nicole Stodard's adaptation updates the play's setting to New York City's club scene in 1978, keeping Wilde's critique of relationships and social mores while mixing in bell-bottoms, drag queens and the shifting gender politics of the sexual revolution. Can you dig it?
