Chicago Shakespeare presents: Emma

8:00 pm - 10:30 pm

January 28 – March 15, 2020 / CST’s Courtyard Theater

based on the novel by Jane Austen
book, music & lyrics by Paul Gordon
directed by Barbara Gaines

Jane Austen’s beloved novel is now a deliciously charming musical, created by Tony Award-nominated composer and lyricist Paul Gordon (Jane Eyre, Sense and Sensibility, Daddy Long Legs). Privileged, pampered, and preoccupied with romance, Emma Woodhouse indulges in her pastime of misguided matchmaking, but is clueless when it comes to her own feelings and a gentleman named Mr. Knightley. As our imperfect heroine learns that love cannot be predicted or channeled, we are swept up by Paul Gordon’s lyrical melodies.
