The Old Globe has announced today that Jane Austen’s Emma – A Musical Romantic Comedy with music, lyrics and book by Tony Award nominee Paul Gordon will fill the final slot of the 2010-11 Winter Season. Directed by Tony Award nominee Jeff Calhoun, Jane Austen’s Emma will run in the Old Globe Theatre Jan. 15 – Feb. 27, 2011. Tickets are currently available by subscription only at, by calling (619) 23-GLOBE or by visiting the box office.


Emma, a beautiful and clever young woman who prides herself on her matchmaking ability, is preoccupied with romance yet is clueless to her own feelings of love. When she takes on a young friend as her latest project, her well-intentioned efforts misfire, leading to a whirlwind of complications – and ultimately, true love.
