Nick Verina, Jeremiah James, Ruth Gottschall, Stephanie Rothenberg, Mary Michael Patterson, Robert Petkoff and Ed Dixon are among the players in the Denver world premiere of Sense & Sensibility The Musical, directed by Tony Award nominee Marcia Milgrom Dodge. Previews begin April 5 prior to an opening night on April 11.
According to DCTC, "In this grand musical adaptation of Jane Austen's enthralling novel, audiences are drawn into the tempestuous world of the Dashwood sisters. Starring in the pivotal sister roles will be Stephanie Rothenberg as Elinor and Mary Michael Patterson as Marianne. The sisters' romantic entanglements will be portrayed by three of Broadway’s most dashing leading men."
Verina (Young Ben in the recent Broadway revival of Follies) plays love-struck Edward; James, who starred as Billy Bigelow in the West End revival of Carousel and as Curly in the first national tour of Oklahoma!, plays the cad Willoughby; and Petkoff, Broadway's recent Lord Evelyn Oakleigh in Anything Goes and Perchik in Fiddler on the Roof, is the upstanding Colonel Brandon.
