Dead Writers Theatre Collective presents playwright Michael Bloom's exciting new adaptation of Emma, Jane Austen's beloved comedy of manners about the perils of finding love. It's the ever-relatable story of the young Emma Woodhouse, a well-meaning but disaster-prone matchmaker, who ignores her own romantic feelings for her lifelong friend and eligible bachelor Mr. Knightley while setting out to find a suitor for a friend. Her efforts go awry, of course, leading to a bevy of comical complications. Learn More

I mostly loved it. Certainly the performances were great! I found their chemistry believable and really rooted for the characters to get together. At times, it seemed like it was a bit rushed (costume changes, scene transitions seemed clumsy) but I think that will improve (this was a preview so some of that was to be expected). My only issues were with the space itself. Since the 'stage' is on the same level with the audience, as the actors walked around, the lights followed them and blinded the audience members. and you're in big trouble if one of them stops right in front of you! I had to keep covering my eyes to avoid the light. I hope that is improved. Lastly, the music was a little too loud - but it was awesome. I'd buy it if they start to sell CDs.
Quotes & Highlights
- "With its grungy-chic streets and blaring bar music, the Wicker Park vibe seemed in complete synch with the world of this hard-driving, emotion-filled musical ... the impact of the show lies with its performers, and they are remarkable." --<a target="_blank" href="http://voices.suntimes.com/arts-entertainment/the-daily-sizzle/rooms-a-rock-romance-a-fervent-punk-era-musical/"><em>Chicago Sun-Times</em></a> (highly recommended)
