Talking With...Jane MartinWhat do you remember or know about 1981? The newly elected President of the United States was Ronald Reagan. For a brief period of time we were not at war. The first personal computer was marketed for public consumption. AIDS was a mystery without a name. Women wore their hair big and padded their shoulders and a station called MTV was launched.

And the very first woman ever to serve on the Supreme Court, Sandra Day O’Connor, was nominated to the bench by President Reagan. What was it like to be a woman in 1981? Can you recall? Do you know?

Talking With… by Jane Martin looks at the varied lives of women in that distant decade. Eleven women – 11 stories. The play is a funny, bittersweet, and sometimes savage testimonial about who women were and wanted to become. It’s quite a journey.

EMMA THEATER A delightfully unconventional and fun adaptation of Jane Austen’s classic comedy. Ever the romantic, Emma Woodhouse prides herself on being the best matchmaker in town. Goaded by her friend George Knightley, she sets out on a quest to set up the adorable ingénue Harriet with a fitting suitor. But love has its own agenda with plenty of twists and turns in store – including a few for Emma herself.

This rendition of Emma is a joyous, irreverent take in conversation with the Regency novel. In a new adaptation that’s a bit zany and refreshingly contemporary, playwright Kate Hamill infuses the language and perspectives of today into Austen’s beloved characters. You may be surprised by who says what — and how. One thing’s for sure, you’ll never see Emma the same way again.

With screwball comedy and surprises aplenty, this fresh, fast-paced [production] interprets the Jane Austen classic with delightfully unconventional flair.” –BroadwayWorld

My Fair Lady HeroWhen Lerner and Loewe’s My Fair Lady opened on Broadway, it collected six Tony Awards, including Best Musical, while the film version took home eight Oscars, including Best Picture. 

Eliza Doolittle is a young flower seller with an unmistakable Cockney accent which keeps her in the lower rungs of Edwardian society. When Professor Henry Higgins tries to teach her how to speak like a proper lady, an unlikely friendship begins to flourish.

Based on George Bernard Shaw’s play Pygmalion, My Fair Lady is that rare musical by which all others are measured. The tale of a cockney flower girl transformed into an elegant lady features one of musical theatre’s greatest scores, including: “Wouldn’t It Be Loverly?,” “With a Little Bit of Luck,” “The Rain in Spain,” “I Could Have Danced All Night,” “On the Street Where You Live,” “Get Me to the Church on Time,” and “I’ve Grown Accustomed to Her Face.”
