What a lovely opening to Oscar Wilde's classic play, The Importance of Being Earnest last week!
The show opened at the Vaudeville Theatre with David Suchet starring as the formidable Lady Bracknell - a role that Suchet himself was excited about, though he was rather hesitant at first to take on a women's role.
However, he told the Telegraph "I'm going to enjoy being in one of the finest English satirical comedies-stroke-farces ever written, and I'm going to have a lot of fun."
It seems to us as though the audience had a lot of fun too, we've rounded up the reviews for you below:
David Suchet leads a sparkling cast in this joyful Wilde revival. Laugh-loud funny… all-out joy. It’s an ensemble triumph. ★★★★
David Suchet's Lady Bracknell is majestically funny...[he] gives a magnificent, stage-filling performance. A thoroughly enjoyable production and, at its centre, lies a superb performance by Suchet ★★★★
