Jane Austen’s beloved, emotional novels inspire readers’ imaginations. Now Tony Award nominee Paul Gordon (The Old Globe’s Emma, Broadway’s Jane Eyre) refashions her timeless classic Sense and Sensibility into a gorgeous, thrillingly romantic musical. After their father’s untimely death, sisters Marianne and Elinor Dashwood lose their fortune, their home, and all their prospects for love. But fortunes can turn again. As the plucky heroines face their situation with courage and resolve, audiences will fall in love with Ms. Austen’s era in a whole new way, enchanted by the lush tones of this ravishing new musical score. The Chicago Sun-Times calledSense and Sensibility “flawless,” and The Wall Street Journal dubbed it “a winner, full of wit and romance—a show as light on its feet as the novel from which it derives.”
