Sense and Sensibility by Kate Hamill adapted from the novel by Jane Austen
Produced by Virginia Stage Company
January 22 - February 9, 2020
"Director Jessica Holt and the entire crew deserve credit for the attention to detail needed to pull off a complex show that mixes drama and comedy, tweaks a beloved author’s novel while preserving its heart, gives Merry Olde England a pop/rock/hip-hop soundtrack, puts nine of its 11 actors in multiple roles, and requires that cast to wheel around the set, and often each other, with grace, bravado, drollery, suspense, insouciance, or whatever effect the moment required."
"...with Jessica Holt at the helm (who directed last season’s Fun Home brilliantly), this production adds contemporary style, popular music, and a very strong ensemble cast who work together extremely well to bring this story to life...Ms. Holt and this remarkable cast have hit the perfect balance in Sense & Sensibility."
""A superb cast, an inventive script, and a creative team full of Austen fans make this show a love letter to Austen's work. It's designed with passionate Austen readers and fans in mind, but anyone can enjoy it's wit, humor, music, dancing, and exuberance."
