“A delightful retelling of a comedy.” – TalkinBroadway.com

Emma Woodhouse is Jane Austen’s most maddening, endearing heroine. Clever and effervescent, young Emma is also a bit too accustomed to having her own way, although only her friend Mr. Knightley seems to notice. Nearly 200 years after its publication, Emma continues to delight, both as a coming-of-age tale and a lively satire of Austen’s elegant and quirky characters. This sparkling adaptation features Regency dance, revelry, and romance that will welcome audiences into Austen’s witty, captivating world.

“Joyful!” – Cleveland Plain Dealer
