The Importance of Being Earnest

The Arvada Center has fast become one of our favorite entertainment venues in the area. Their musicals and plays are delightful. Recently, we saw Oscar Wilde's "The Importance of Being Earnest" at their Black Box Theatre.
It was farcical yet intelligent, with wonderful wordplay. It was well-cast, well-staged, well-acted, and just plain fun.
This play has numerous clever, often humorous. lines. My favorite is this. Jack Worthing has just told Lady Bracknell (Aunt Augusta) that he has lost both of his parents. Her reply: "To lose one parent, Mr Worthing, may be regarded as a misfortune; to lose both looks like carelessness." Review by the Denver Post here.
We started the evening at one of our favorite fast-food places, Kokoro Japanese Restaurant, just south of the Arvada Center on Wadsworth.
