The Baltimore Waltz

Vogel’s fantastical farce traces the European odyssey of sister and brother, Anna and Carl, in search of romance and a cure for her terminal illness, the fictitious ATD (Acquired Toilet Disease) she contracted by using the bathrooms at the elementary school where she teaches. Critically acclaimed by the New York Times as “a crazy-quilt patchwork of hyperventilating language, erotic jokes, movie kitsch that spins before the audience in Viennese waltz time, replete with a dizzying fall," Rep Stage presents this Obie Award-winning play during the 25th anniversary year of the original workshop production.

The Importance of Being Earnest  
Atlas Performing Arts Center The Importance of Being Earnest
 
bachelors each attempt to come across as very earnest -- while masquerading as guys named Ernest -- as they set out to win their well-dowried ladies' hearts. Naturally, their misguided plan goes hilariously awry. Oscar Wilde's enduring 1895 satire is a comically sly romp through Victorian society, filled with one-liners and double entendres that continue to pack a mighty punch to this day. Revived numerous times on Broadway -- most recently in 2011 -- The Importance of Being Earnest was also adapted into a 2002 film starring Oscar winners Reese Witherspoon and Colin Firth. Go Wilde with this Scena production at the Atlas Performing Arts Center in Washington, DC.
