Take in a performance of Sense and Sensibility at the Chicago Shakespeare Theater (CST) at Navy Pier this weekend. A musical adaptation of Jane Austen’s beloved novel, the music and lyrics are written by by Tony Award®-nominated composer Paul Gordon.
Directed by Artistic Director Barbara Gaines, this lush period production traces the lives of Elinor and Marianne Dashwood—two sisters whose fortunes change following their father’s untimely death. One practical and dutiful, the other consumed by youthful passion, their quest for suitable husbands unfolds in a period-perfect production that you’re sure to love.
Sense and Sensibility will be performed in CST’s Courtyard Theater. Tickets are on sale for $48–$78 with special discounts available for groups of 10 or more, as well as CST for $20 tickets available for patrons under 35. All patrons receive a 40 percent discount on parking in Navy Pier garages. For more information or to purchase tickets visit the Theater’s website at www.chicagoshakes.com.
