Smart Bets: Aquila Theatre

Touring company Aquila Theatre brings a double dose of antics — both comedic and dramatic — to the Diana Wortham stage. On Friday, Feb. 3, the troupe performs Oscar Wilde’s The Importance of Being Earnest, a dizzy romantic romp that makes the most of double entendres and witty repartee. The next evening, it's Shakespeare’s Macbeth, a darkly compelling tale of prophecy, war and madness. According to a press release, "Aquila’s production of Macbeth breathes new fire into this wickedly troubled work, made ever relevant by its theme of the destruction wrought when ambition goes unchecked by moral constraints." Both performances are at 8 p.m. $35 general admission, $30 for students, $12 for children.
