You’ve never seen Austen like this! Called the “greatest stage adaptation of this novel in history”, this rollicking, ingeniously-staged new adaptation follows the adventures (and misadventures) of the Dashwood sisters - sensible Elinor and hypersensitive Marianne - after their sudden loss of fortune. Bursting with humor, emotion, and bold theatricality, 'Sense and Sensibility' asks: when reputation is everything, how do you follow your heart?
- Huffington Post
"Goofy, joyous and deeply moving"
- Daily News
"Downton Abbey on roller skates....Go! Go! Go!"
- Philadelphia Inquirer
"It’s by far the smartest Jane Austen adaptation to come along since Amy Heckerling’s Clueless,
and at least as much fun."
EXTENDED AGAIN THRU APRIL 17

The Bar Mitzvah Is Back On! Falsettos Revival Sets Fall Broadway Dates
Performances will begin on September 29.
The Broadway revival of Falsettos is back on track. The William Finn and James Lapine musical will begin performances on September 29 at the Walter Kerr Theatre. Opening night is set for October 27. Casting will be announced at a later date.
Lapine, who directed the original production, returns to helm the revival.Spring Awakening’s Spencer Liff will choreograph. The production is a collaboration between Jujamcyn Theaters and Lincoln Center Theater; Jujamcyn president Jordan Rothinitially announced plans for a spring 2016 Broadway bow.
The tuner follows Marvin who struggles to create a "tight-knit family" out of his eclectic array of core relationships (including his ex-wife, his new boyfriend, his adolescent son, his psychiatrist and his neighbors). Amidst a series of monumental life changes, he is forced to reckon with his own views on love, responsibility and what it means to be a man.
Finn took home the 1993 Tony Award for Best Score and shared Best Book with Lapine for the 1992 production. The cast included Michael Rupert as Marvin, as well as Chip Zien, Carolee Carmello, Barbara Walsh, Heather MacRae, Jonathan Kaplan and Stephen Bogardus.
The new production will feature sets by David Rockwell, costumes by Jennifer Caprio, lighting design by Jeff Croiter and sound design by Dan Moses Schreier.
The Walter Kerr Theatre's next tenant will be The Crucible, which plays a limited engagement from March 1 through July 17.
