The Importance of Being Earnest (by Oscar Wilde) is presented by L.A. Theatre Works. This standalone audiobook app combines a professional audio recording with supplemental features for download-once, grab-and-go anywhere enjoyment.

This final play from the pen of Oscar Wilde is a stylish send-up of Victorian courtship and manners, complete with assumed names, mistaken lovers, and a lost handbag. Jack and Algernon are best friends, both wooing ladies who think their names are Ernest, “that name which inspires absolute confidence.” Wilde’s effervescent wit, scathing social satire, and high farce make this one of the most cherished plays in the English language.

Includes an interview with director Michael Hackett, Professor of Theater in the School of Theater, Film and Television at UCLA.

James Marsters as Jack
Charles Busch as Lady Bracknell
Emily Bergl as Cecily
Neil Dickson as Lane and Merriman

Romeo & Juliet (William Shakespeare) [audio+text]

Free
This app includes a full-cast audio performance of William Shakespeare's “Romeo and Juliet” by L.A. Theatre Works, along with the complete text of the script.

With both the audio narration performed by amazing actors and the text, you can go back-and-forth from reading at the breakfast table, to listening while you commute to work, and reading again before bedtime. Just tap, and you can easily shift from one to the other—or follow along in the text as you listen!

“Romeo and Juliet” is the most iconic love story of all time, and is one of Shakespeare’s most beloved plays. With it, Shakespeare created the first tragic love story; before “Romeo and Juliet”, romance was not viewed as a worthy topic for tragedy. Today, romance is used as a theme in virtually every tragic or dramatic movie, play, book, and television show that is written, due greatly in part to “Romeo and Juliet”.
