"A sparkling jewel of a musical... driven by a ravishing score... a meticulously structured book... an ideally talented and notably diverse cast... Marked by an abundance of intelligence, emotion, wit and style, it is perfection."  –Chicago Sun-Times
"Left the audience starstruck with an equally riveting combination of writing, direction and performance."  –Newcity
"Wrapped in quick wit with a delightful songbook that turns this Georgian-set English novel into must-see musical theatre... Bringing the tale to life is an exquisite, professional ensemble led by a triumvirate of angel-voiced actresses"  –Chicagoland Musical Theatre

Catherine Morland leaves her quiet country home for the splendors of Bath, armed only with an innocent heart and the examples of her favorite literary heroines. Immersed in a new world of parties, balls, and high society, Catherine soon finds herself caught in a web of social scheming far above her skill to master. False friends, greedy lovers, and a wealth of misunderstandings lead to the revelation that bruises of the heart can be far more painful than the imagined terrors of Gothic novels. Take a turn through the ballrooms of Bath and unravel the mysteries of Northanger Abbey in a world premiere musical based on the satirical 1817 comedy of manners by Jane Austen.

Based on the novel by Jane Austen
Book by Robert Kauzlaric
Music & Lyrics by George Howe
Directed by Elise Kauzlaric
