An Ideal Husband

Huntington Avenue Theatre, 264 Huntington Avenue

Golden Globe winner and three-time Emmy Award® nominee Calista Flockhart (“Ally McBeal,” The Birdcage) stars in Oscar Wilde’s inspired comedy about money, desire and the depths of deceit. At a sparkling party in a London home, the mysterious Mrs. Cheveley (Flockhart) slyly blackmails her host, threatening to reveal dark secrets unless she gets her way. Suddenly, her devious scheme sets off all kinds of potential shock waves involving social status, financial ruin and the essential reputation of an ideal husband. The New York Times raves that this “deliriously funny play speaks in a language that remains forever fresh.” Directing is the Huntington’s own Artistic Director Peter DuBois.
