Sam Greevy is the toast of 1920s women’s apparel until the maverick fashion designer Paul Roms springs his radical creations in the world. The Sweatshirt, The Track Suit, Skater Pants: the clothes he comes up with are as if... they were from another dimension, and maybe they are.
As Greevy tries to adapt to rapidly changing fashions, a parallel drama unfolds in Albany, circa 1998: a teenager stoner keeps losing articles of clothing, and a man keeps bursting out of his closet and taking them.
"Jones hilariously employs the clichés of Hollywood sci-fi and disaster films, complete with pseudoscientific jargon, a deranged villain, and an epic final battle in which the time-traveling convention really gets a workout. It's unapologetically silly fun..." - TheatreMania
"Part sci-fi parody, part Ayn Rand spoof and 100% screwball comedy, Important Hats...leaves no punchline unpunched." - The Wall Street Journal
"One of the most delightfully original comedies to show up in these parts for far too long a stretch." - The Huffington Post
