Preview: Sense and Sensibility at City Theatre
Did theatre folks resurrect the Jane Austen Book Club or something? After a fine production of Pride and Prejudice at STC in 2014 and a lush Sense and Sensibility last season came an excellent imagined sequel to P&P called Miss Bennett: Christmas at Pemberley at Capital Stage. Now comes a new Jane Austen’s Sense and Sensibility at City Theatre. It’s the story of the Dashwood sisters whose happy lives hit hard times with the death of their father. It’s about family, honor, wealth—and, most importantly, love.
