Emma

This modern musical adaptation lifts Jane Austen’s comedy of manners out of Regency England and sets it down in contemporary Connecticut. Emma, a graduate student at Highbury College, embarks on a personal mission to set up a lonely gay student named Harry with a suitable boyfriend. She sets her sights on school a cappella star Trevor, but her plan is soon complicated by the return of an old rival and a visit from a British film star. Emma’s mentor/advisor, Dr. Knight, and her old friend, Miss Bates, join the fracas — and the rural college soon teems with missed connections. A delightful and deeply felt spin on the original.
