Fall in love again with the language of Jane Austen through Tony-Nominated Paul Gordon’s stage adaptation of Emma.
Watch Kelli Barrett (star of Doctor Zhivago, Getting’ the Band Back Together) as Emma Woodhouse as she leads a cast of Broadway performers in this timeless love story from one of the most widely read writers of all time. Emma is re-imagined in mid-century modern while keeping the language fans have come to adore intact.
Set in the English town of Highbury during the Summer of 1961 and filled with some of Austen's most beloved characters including Harriet Smith, Robert Martin, Frank Churchill and Mr. George Knightly, EMMA is the romantic tale of a spirited young woman determined to arrange matches for her friends. But when matchmaking becomes more hindering than helpful, Emma starts to learn what it truly means to be in love and realizes that the match she is more likely to make might just be her own.
Staged in a theatre but shot like a film, EMMA is the first "Soundstage Musical," a groundbreaking new approach to making musicals that allows theatre to become more accessible and sustainable in the 21st Century.
