Los Angeles Theatre Works presents an HD screening of The Importance of Being Earnest from Roundabout Theatre’s Tony-nominated Broadway production. Angelenos have a chance to watch the Oscar Wilde comedy, directed by and starring Tony-nominee Brian Bedford, in a still-running Broadway production. It's cheaper than a plane ticket to New York. Held at the James Bridges Theater at UCLA, tonight at 7 pm. Check Los Angeles Theatre works for additional screening times. Tickets: $20, students $10.

It’s the last Engagement Party at MOCA with the art collective Neighborhood Public Radio tonight at 7 pm. The “In the Air” project combines musicians, electric guitars and fuzzboxes so visitors can experience fuzztone drone both live and through their radios. 7 pm at MOCA Grand Avenue. Free.
