An Ideal Husband is another American Stage must-see ... this show combined the best that theater has to offer ... The play is witty as is, but this quick-change bit takes it to a whole new level of hilarity ... All four actors gave stellar performances — in every role, wig and dress ... The American Stage production of Oscar Wilde's An Ideal Husband came close to outshining the playwright's brilliant treatise on corruption”
– Kathy L. Greenberg, Tampa Tribune

“Brilliant…tour de force…devilishly clever…may be the most topical play you'll see all year.” – John Fleming, St. Petersburg Times

“Splendid…excellent…impeccable.” – Mark E. Leib, Creative Loafing

“Outstanding…[a] sumptuous feast of a production…Todd Olson, the director of the much-acclaimed American Stage Theatre Company in St. Petersburg, Fla., directs a smashing production.
-Reva Blau, Provincetown Banner

“Using Wilde's brilliant script, [Olson] has artfully created a period piece that still speaks volumes about today's movers and shakers and the political scandals that unfold around many of them…An Ideal Husband breathes new life into an insightful drama that will never go out of style, as long as the politics of greed and money make the world go round…"
-Cape Cod Chronicle

“Impressive…impeccably produced…beautiful period costumes and sets…beautifully acted.” -Cape Cod Times

“Scandals used to lend charm to a man – now they crush him.” In Oscar Wilde’s classic comedy, fate catches up to politician Sir Robert Chiltern when a mysterious woman produces a letter revealing a past misdeed. Suddenly, a choice must be made between public scandal and private shame. Insider trading, government scandal, morality in politics... whoever thought a 116 year-old comedy could feel so new?
