Chicago—February 2, 2015—Chicago Shakespeare Theater (CST) announces the full casting and creative team for the highly anticipated world premiere of Sense and Sensibility, a musical adaptation of Jane Austen’s beloved novel, with book, music and lyrics by Tony Award®-nominated composer Paul Gordon. Directed by Artistic Director Barbara Gaines, this lush period production traces the lives of Elinor and Marianne Dashwood—two sisters who are as bound by their love for each other as they are conflicted in their different natures.
Megan McGinnis originates the role of the wildly romantic Marianne, joined by Sharon Rietkerk as the practical and dutiful Elinor. Commissioned by Chicago Shakespeare Theater, Sense and Sensibility crowns the close of the 2014/15 season in the Courtyard Theater, April 18 – June 7.
