The Play

Jane Austen's deliciously charming romance is full of wit, passion and now, glorious song. This world premiere musical from Tony Award®-nominated composer Paul Gordon was specially commissioned by CST for the 2014/15 Season. Under the masterful hand of Artistic Director Barbara Gaines, beautiful melodies trace the lives of Elinor and Marianne Dashwood—two sisters whose fortunes change following their father's untimely death. One cool and deliberate, the other consumed by youthful passion, their quest for suitable husbands unfolds in a period-perfect production that will set your spirits soaring.
