Come really early - at least half and hour before because wherever you park, you have to walk a distance to get to Center House in the middle of Seattle Center.

Park in the Seattle center parking lot across the street from EMP - not the open lot next to it which is super expensive ($22 for the evening only)

We loved the play, but Goldstar did not seat our group together as promised.

I did not like the performance, the presentation made Jane Austen seem insipid, obvious, predictable. There was no excitement, anticipation or delight.

Quotes & Highlights

Read a review of two recent books about Austen’s enduring literary appeal in the Seattle Times.


Pride and Prejudice, Persuasion, Emma, and now Sense and Sensibility. Book-It’s fourth Jane Austen adaptation brings audiences back to the sweeping work that began her career.

In Austen’s first published novel (1811), the Dashwood sisters find that love is an unpredictable struggle against the most important social values: family, honor, and wealth. As teens, Elinor and Marianne’s family fortunes take a turn when they lose their father, and their welcome in his home, now owned by their half-brother and his overbearing wife. With a move and a few chance meetings, Elinor falls for the intelligent and reserved Edward Ferrars, while Marianne dotes upon the handsome John Willoughby. Through Elinor’s sense and Marianne’s sensibility, this sprightly tale wends along the twisting path of love among the English gentry.
