Los Angeles Times- Recommended

"...Despite its concision, the musical effectively captures a key strength of the novel: an understanding that love cannot be predicted or channeled; it goes where it will."

Daryl H. Miller

Broadway World- Recommended

"...Directed by Casey Long, the musical keeps a lovely pace and a quick wit. It is staged with a very effective use of ensemble members on the edges of the stage in little vignettes, and for scene changes keep the scenes flowing smoothly into each other. Emma's meddling also at times physically manifests as a puppet master to the unwitting victims of her machinations."

Stage Scene LA- Highly Recommended

"...If Jane Austen didn't exactly invent the contemporary romantic comedy, she came pretty darned close, proof positive of which can be found in Jane Austen's Emma: The Musical, Paul Gordon's magical stage adaptation of Miss Emma Woodhouse's misadventures in matchmaking circa 1815, now getting a picture-perfect Orange County Premiere at Chance Theater."
