Set in Victorian England, “Ernest In Love” is a musical adaptation of Oscar Wilde’s “The Importance of Being Earnest.” The plot revolves around Jack Worthing, an earnest young man who loves the aristocratic Gwendolen Fairfax. Gwendolen says she loves him, however, she thinks he is someone else. Jack’s problems multiply as he desperately tries to hold onto Gwendolen, win over her formidable mother, Lady Bracknell, and protect his young ward, Cecily Cardew, from the advances of his friend, the pleasure loving Algernon Moncrieff.
