The Importance of Being Earnest
a clever and quick-witted performance
BY PAM STEVENS | EDITOR
Opening night of The Importance of Being Earnest at Village Theatre on Wetmore Ave. in Everett was a night to remember.
The small, eight-member cast, each had their share of lines to memorize and each did so perfectly and with great wit and inflection.
Paul Morgan Stetler, playing the role of John “Jack” Worthing once again provided the audience with a stellar and amusing performance. Stetler was last seen in the Village Theatre’s performance of Beauty and the Beast, where he played to role of Gaston, my favorite character in the stage performance.
He gives another memorable performance in this play.
Another favorite performance was given by Angela DeMarco who plays the young Cecily Cardew. At times, you’re not sure if she is naïve or just plain loony but her performance is fun to watch as her character falls in love with Algernon Moncrieff at an extremely quick pace.
The set was simple and artistic with beautiful color and décor.
Be sure to get there early and enjoy the clever quotes regarding love and marriage. They’re sure to start your evening out on the right foot with comic relief and a little wisdom thrown in.
The play will be on stage in Everett from now until March 29 and runs Wednesdays through Sunday evenings with matinee performances on Saturday and Sunday.
