Join the Academy Center of the Arts and the American Shakespeare Center (ASC) for Jane Austen’s Sense and Sensibility on Friday, January 19th at 7:30pm.
The ASC brings a unique performance style to the Academy Center of the Arts, blending Shakespeare’s stagecraft with modern sensibility. The company uses Shakespeare’s Staging Conditions: universal lighting, minimal sets, character doubling, cross-gender casting, and live music. Shakespeare’s performance company couldn’t turn the lights out on the audience; actors and audience shared the same light. The Wicked Folly Tour shares light with the audience throughout the performance for a unique brand of audience contact rarely seen in theatre today.
Tickets to this show are SOLD OUT. For more information, call (434) 846-8499.
About Sense and Sensibility:
After their father dies, the Dashwood women must learn to embrace a new life, for better or for worse. Sisters Marianne (a hopeless romantic) and Elinor (a stoic realist) experience the pitfalls of society, the generosity of new friends, and the passion of unexpected love in this world-premiere adaptation of Jane Austen’s exquisite early work. By battling through vicious gossip, relative poverty, and silly characters (not to mention countless set-ups by the “helpful” Mrs. Jennings), these sisters learn the importance of both sense and sensibility.
