Great to learn more about this famous character, and the intimate lives connected to him. Actors do a nice job bringing the issues to life. Dramatizes Wilde's final chapter in a personal way.... full review

If you like biopics, this is a great one to check out! Very fine acting, directing and writing that brings back one of the literary world's most intriguing personalities and the scandal the defined the latter part of his life. Full of insight and heart, the show is a fascinating look at the effects of our obsessions.... full review

A delightful tale told in three linked vignettes centering on a bedraggled, post-prison Oscar Wilde. Brandie June captures Wilde brilliantly in the text, without the homages feeling forced or heavy-handed. And the players, particularly Mr. Abraham, roll these quips and quotes off effortlessly and organically. A lovely piece and ripe for a bit more life in the future. ... full review

The show has a wonderful message and shows how far we have come as a society to break down the social constructs concerning who and how we love another. Playwright Brandie June has quite the knowledge and love for Wilde, which tremendously shines through. Many of Wilde's most popular quotes find themselves nestled into the dialogue to round out a thought. Or just because. The cast is stellar and I particularly enjoyed Cyanne McClarian's heart-crunching performance. Looking forward to see what this team brings next.... full review

I really enjoyed this production! I'm not super familiar with Wilde's work, but I love all of his quotations and felt compelled to kiss his grave when I visited Paris. June's script is peppered with Wildeisms, guaranteeing a few good chuckles. The actors show us three aspects of Wilde. Abraham gives a standout performance in this well-directed piece that presents with the human side of a legend. The free absinthe at the start of the show didn't hurt, either!... full review

A moving look at the sadder aspects of the life of Oscar Wilde which cleverly highlights the sadness by juxtaposing it with his famous (and endless) witty quips. Really good, natural performances and elegantly unfolding in three parts.... full review

BRIGHT EYES certified reviewer · June 16, 2018
An admirable attempt, but tries to do too much with too little. Wilde deserves more depth. The playwright needs to dig deeper. Moments of great emotion are briefly touched upon (loss of friendship, family and love) and gone. Trying to touch a lot of bases with insufficient time.... full review
