Tony Award winner David Hyde Pierce directs the new vision for Earnest that takes a page from Damon Runyon's Prohibition-era New York, with wise guys, dolls and a Bracknell who is part "Ma Barker and Don Corleone."
The Importance of Being Earnest will continue through July 14.
Here's how Williamstown characterizes the new production: "What if a family of Guys and Dolls-style gangsters moved to 'Downton Abbey'-style London in order to escape certain, shall we say, entanglements? What if two of these wise guys fell hard for two tough dolls? And what if the formidable dame who runs the aforementioned criminal family developed an appetite for cucumber sandwiches?"
Tail! Spin! is the hysterical new comedy drawn verbatim from the leaked e-mails, raunchy texts and tell-tale tweets that brought down politicians Anthony Weiner, Mark Sanford, Larry Craig and Mark Foley. With SNL Alum Rachel Dratch! Only $55!
