Paul Gordon's Emma - A Musical Romantic Comedy Added to the Old Globe Theatre's Winter Season
The piece centers on a beautiful and clever young woman who prides herself on her matchmaking ability and yet, while preoccupied with romance, is clueless to her own feelings of love. Casting and creative team will be announced at a later date.
Gordon's other musicals include the Tony Award-nominated Jane Eyre, as well as Daddy-Long-Legs, Lucky Break, and Analogue and Vinyl. He is currently working on Little Miss Scrooge, a contemporary retelling of the Dickens classic.
The production joins a lineup which also includes, as previously announced, such works as Alan Ayckbourn's Life of Riley, Kristoffer Diaz's Welcome to Arroyo's, Ayub Khan-Din's Rafta, Rafta..., and Ian Bruce's Groundswell, Neil Simon's Brighton Beach Memoirs and Broadway Bound, and Tracy Letts' August: Osage County, among others.
