Emma Woodhouse has it all: beauty, wealth, status, wit. She also has a talent for matchmaking, and delights in pairing off the eligible men and women in town, much to the chagrin of her disapproving friend, Mr. Knightley. But when Emma decides to find a husband for her young protégée Harriet Smith, she sets off a chain of events that could break several hearts…including her own. Jane Austen’s beloved Regency rom-com gets a dazzling update in this brand-new stage adaptation by Assistant Artistic Director Claire F. Martin.
