Dead Writers Theater Collective’s Elegant Production of “The Importance of Being Earnest”

**** Highly Recommended **** When Dead Writers Theater Collective produce a play, even something as over-produced as “The Importance of Being Earnest”, I’ve come to expect that it will be done with incredible attention to detail, that the accents will be perfect, the costumes sumptuous, and the set unique.  This production of “The Importance of Being Earnest” fits that criteria perfectly.  It is also the most elegant “Earnest” I’ve ever seen, so I give it 4 Spotlights.

Dead Writers Theatre Collective’s production of “The Importance of Being Earnest” runs through July 31st in Studio Two, Athenaeum Theatre, 2936 N. Southport, Chicago.  There are three acts with two intermissions.  Performances are Thursday through Saturday at 7:30 pm, Sunday at 2:30.  Tickets range from $27-$42.  Paid parking is available in the parking lot on Oakdale Street, behind St. Alphonsus Catholic Church, or in a second parking lot on the corner of Southport and Oakdale.  Street parking is also available.  FYI (773) 935-6875 or
