"Jane Austen's Emma"

Jane Austen’s Emma
Paul Gordon (Music, Lyrics & Book)
Adapted from the novel by Jane Austen

Travis Leland & Lianne Marie Dobbs
With a bit too much pride in the prejudices she firmly holds about who should be married to whom, Emma allows her sense and sensibilities to cloud her good-hearted judgments about others’ lives and to squelch her own true feelings of love.  And in Paul Gordon’s Jane Austen’s Emma as revived by TheatreWorks Silicon Valley, she does so in a gloriously stunning stage setting, through soaring and memorable music, and with many more comedic twists and turns than most Austen readers will associate with the much-loved author.
