"Being Earnest,’’ directed and choreographed by Ilyse Robbins with her usual brio, her knack for expressing character through physical movement, and her sense of how to make a comic moment land." - Don Aucoin, The Boston Globe

"What happens when you take an Oscar Wilde classic play from the Naughty Nineties, add about a dozen original musical numbers, and update the story and setting to London's swinging Carnaby Street in the sixties? Well, if you put it in the hands of Director/Choreographer Ilyse Robbins and Music Director Steve Bass, you get a rom-com that is heavy on both the romance and the comedy, a ride in the wayback machine, and an afternoon (or evening) delight at the Greater Boston Stage Company in Stoneham." - Nancy Grossman,
