Jane Austen News – Issue 114

The Jane Austen News goes to the West End

What’s the Jane Austen News this week? 

Emma On Broadway

A new West End and Broadway production of Emma: A New Musical is currently being developed by award-winning director Thom Southerland, award-winning playwright Meghan Brown, and Sarah Taylor Ellis, a composer who specialises in musicals about women.

The leading roles will be played by Carly Bawden, Rupert Young and Ashleigh Gray, all of whom are highly accomplished actors from stage and screen, and the cast includes a host of equally impressive performers who have previously starred in the likes of Harry Potter And The Cursed Child, 42nd Street and Les Miserables.
