"The current production of The Importance of Being Earnest, directed by Victor Pappas, is a master class in Quinn Franzen’s eyes. The rosy-cheeked young actor merrily glides through his performance as Algernon, a witty and carefree rascal, like he’s cruising through a well-appointed parlor on roller skates, pausing only to gaze at the audience with sly bedroom eyes whenever he says anything particularly clever. In a different play, this would be too much, but it’s a shrewd move on the director’s part, underscoring the self-awareness—and anarchic disdain for the same upper-class settings Wilde loved to lounge in—that makes Earnest glow." (Brendan Kiley)
