Patti Murin will play Emma Woodhouse opposite Adam Monley's Mr. Knightley and Will Reynolds' Frank Churchill in Jane Austen's Emma - A Musical Romantic Comedy, to run January 15 - February 27 at the Old Globe Theatre. Jeff Calhoun will direct the production.

With book, music and lyrics by Paul Gordon, the piece is an adaptation of Austen's classic novel about a young woman, who, while priding herself on her matchmaking ability, is unable to express her own feelings of love or find a match for herself. Complete casting will be announced shortly.

Murin appeared on Broadway in Xanadu. Among her other credits are regional productions at Dallas Theater Center, Berkshire Theatre Festival, Theatre of the Stars, Goodspeed Musicals, and 5th Avenue Theatre, among others.

Monley was seen on Broadway Mamma Mia! and has appeared in the national tours of The Phantom of the Opera and Big River. Among his other credits are Fanny Hill and A Gingerbread House.

Reynolds has been seen regionally at such theaters as Light Opera Works in Chicago, Maltz Jupiter Theatre, Cape Playhouse, Adirondack Theatre Festival, and Pittsburgh Irish and Classical Theatre.
