Performances added of An Ideal Husband at Taproot Theatre
Wilde’s witty classic is selling quickly, now extended through October 29
SEATTLE – October 11, 2011 – Due to extraordinary ticket demand, Taproot Theatre is adding a matinee performance on Tuesday, October 18 and extending An Ideal Husband through October 29. Now audiences have one more week to experience this vibrant production.
Misha Berson of The Seattle Times says, "Karen Lund's staging unpacks a scintillating farce about men and women, marriage and politics, blackmail and ethics." Considered by many to be Oscar Wilde’s finest social comedy, An Ideal Husband continues to be surprisingly modern.
Written by Oscar Wilde and directed by Karen Lund, An Ideal Husband features a talented cast of Ryan Childers, Anne Kennedy, Aaron Lamb, Adrienne Littleton, Joe Monroe, Pam Nolte, Nolan Palmer, Simon Pringle, Candace Vance, Nikki Visel and Sarah Ware. The production team includes scenic and sound designer Mark Lund, costume designer Nanette Acosta and lighting designer Jody Briggs. Anne L. Hitt serves as stage manager and Sonja Lowe as dramaturg.
