Sense and Sensibility
Elinor Dashwood has a lot of good Sense. Her sister Marianne Dashwood has an excess of Sensibility. Together they make a snappy title for Jane Austen’s classic novel of scandals, scoundrels and severely sprained ankles. This funny, fast-paced and faithful new adaptation features live music, audience interaction, romance and heartbreak.
It’s stormy outside. In here, tensions are simmering. As a touring swing band gather for their next performance, malevolent trickster Iago begins to sow the seeds of mistrust. Shakespeare’s tragedy of jealousy and deception is relocated to a jazz-age setting, with live music, intense drama, and more than a hint of our inimitable brand of theatrical mischief.
