DTC winds up current season with classic Austen adaptation
For the first time in several seasons, the Dallas Theater Center didn’t plan a summertime family musical this year, so the run of the adaptation of Jane Austen’s comedy of manners Sense & Sensibility, which officially opens May 1, is the end of the 2014–15 season. And while there might not be lots of singing and dancing, it’s still a family-friendly kind of show, full of romance, dignity, subtle does of feminism and lush costumes.

Opening night May 1. Through May 25.
