The Old Globe today announced the complete cast and creative team for Jane Austen's Emma - A Musical Romantic Comedy. The musical, with book, music and lyrics by Tony Award nominee Paul Gordon and direction by Tony Award nominee Jeff Calhoun, will run in the Old Globe Theatre Jan. 15 - Feb. 27.

As previously announced, Patti Murin will star in the title role as Emma Woodhouse with Adam Monley as Mr. Knightley and Will Reynolds as Frank Churchill. Newly announced are Adam Daveline (Robert Martin), Suzanne Grodner (Miss Bates), Kelly Hutchinson (Mrs. Bates, Mrs. Elton), Brian Herndon (Mr. Elton), Jerry Lanning (Mr. Woodhouse), Dani Marcus (Harriet Smith), Amanda Naughton (Mrs. Weston), Don Noble (Mr. Weston) and Allison Spratt Pearce (Jane Fairfax).

The creative team features Tobin Ost (Scenic Design), Denitsa D. Bliznakova (Costume Design), Michael Gilliam (Lighting Design), John H. Shivers and David Patridge (Sound Design), Brad Haak (Music Supervisor), Laura Bergquist (Music Director) and Thomas J. Gates (Stage Manager).

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.

You can also participate in free post-show discussions of the musical with cast and crew following the performances on January 25, February 1st and 9th.

Tickets are available at www.theoldglobe.org. The Old Globe is located in San Diego's Balboa Park at 1363 Old Globe Way.
