Love and Marriage and Scandal


Oscar Wilde's An Ideal Husband, all about corruption and blackmail and marital shenanigans, was written in 1895, long before our current political scandals and dramas that make the news daily. So did the playwright have a crystal ball with which to predict the future? Nah. This nonsense has been going on for ages, making Wilde's comedy timeless and entertaining today (if not somewhat depressing that it's still politics as usual). Soundstage Productions presents a reader's-theater production of the play at 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday, and at 7 p.m. Sunday (August 20 through 29) at ArtSpace in Crestwood Court (Watson and Sappington roads, Crestwood), which is on the east end of the mall near the movie theater. Tickets cost $10; learn more by calling 314-322-1651 or visiting
Fridays-Sundays. Starts: Aug. 20. Continues through Aug. 29, 2010
