WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Eric Tucker's exuberant, inventive staging of Jane Austen's classic novel follows the adventures (and misadventures) of the Dashwood sisters — sensible Elinor and hypersensitive Marianne — after their sudden loss of fortune. Bursting with humor, emotion, and bold theatricality, Bedlam's Sense & Sensibility asks this question: When reputation is everything, how do you follow your heart? American Repertory Theater transforms its main stage in the Loeb Drama Center for this production, seating audience members on two sides of a long playing space to bring them closer to the action as scenery and actors traverse the stage throughout the fast-paced comedy.
