"The Importance of Being Earnest" was captured live in high-definition from Roundabout's American Airlines Theatre (227 West 42nd St., New York, NY) and features the original cast of this new Broadway production. The play is a comedy of mistaken identity. Dashing men-about-town John Worthing and Algernon Moncrieff pursue fair ladies Gwendolen Fairfax and Cecily Cardew. Matters are complicated by the imaginary characters invented by both men to cover their on-the-sly activities. As an added bonus, host David Hyde Pierce takes viewers backstage for special behind-the-scenes peek! In addition, Alfred Molina and Oscar Wilde expert Michael Hackett discuss the writer and the man in an intermission special.
