Sense and Sensibility on stage at Calvin College in Michigan


Alert Janeite Liz M. wrote to tell us that Calvin College in Grand Rapids, Michigan, will stage SENSE AND SENSIBILITY on November 2-4 and 9-11, 2006.

Set in the shift between Classicism and Romanticism Jane Austen’s classic novel asks the question, “Can we be rational in love?” Adapted for numerous stage, film, and television productions, Calvin Theatre Company’s Sense and Sensibility emphasizes the novel’s innate dramatic qualities, often sharp satirical wit, and the complicated road to love in a society where wealth was considered an indication of character and a little gossip could go a long way.

Liz wrote that the gang at Calvin did a great job with Tom Stoppard’s ARCADIA this past spring, so she has high hopes for this production. Tickets are $9 Thursday, $10 Friday and Saturday, and $5 for students. Show times are 8 pm unless noted otherwise. Contact the box office at 616.526.6282.
