The elegance and eloquence of Oscar Wilde’s The Importance of Being Earnest are coming to the big screen, and we’ve got a preview! As previously reported, the Roundabout Theatre Company revival of the classic play was filmed live on March 11 and 12, and as an added bonus for moviegoers, Broadway favorite David Hyde Pierce will take viewers backstage for look behind the scenes. In addition, Alfred Molina and Oscar Wilde expert Michael Hackett will discuss the writer and the man in an intermission special. In Earnest, dashing men-about-town John Worthing and Algernon Moncrieff pursue fair ladies Gwendolen Fairfax and Cecily Cardew, until matters are complicated by the imaginary characters invented by both men to cover their on-the-sly activities. The comedy of manners, now running at the American Airlines Theatre, will air in movie theaters and performing arts centers across the U.S. and internationally on June 2, and on varying dates through June 30.
