The tale of the princess marrying her prince is one of those archetypal stories that never suffers from a fresh approach in the retelling. On film, Gwyneth Paltrow and Alicia Silverstone have played completely different versions of the same character. But something essential from Austen's original portrait remained intact for both actresses. The same can be said of the musical version, which TheatreWorks Silicon Valley is bringing to the Lucie Stern Theatre for a month-long engagement. When Emma begins to sing "So This Is How Love Feels," the audience, longing for a happy ending, understands that domestic bliss is just a few short notes away. (JE)

TheatreWorks Silicon Valley presents a musical romance for the holidays, bringing one of literature's most delightful heroines to sparkling life with the triumphant return of Jane Austen's Emma, with music, lyrics, and book by Paul Gordon, adapted from the novel by Jane Austen. This beloved musical features "Emma," an effervescent ingenue whose matchmaking mischief inevitably misfires. Obsessed with romance, but clueless about her own feelings, she navigates the course of true love with a generous heart and an indomitable spirit. A 19th century masterpiece brought to joyous life, this funny, irresistible revival features a glorious score by the Tony Award-nominated composer of Jane Eyre and Daddy Long Legs. Emma will be directed by Robert Kelley.
