Featuring book, music, and lyrics by Tony-nominated composer Paul Gordon and directed by TheatreWorks's Founding Artistic Director Robert Kelley, this engaging new musical based on Jane Austen's iconic novel made its World Premiere at TheatreWorks Silicon Valley in December 2019, shattering box office records for the Tony-winning theatre company and receiving four 2020 San Francisco Bay Area Critics Circle Awards (SFBATCC), including Entire Production.
