Emma the Musical will be streaming today - here's how to watch the musical:



For centuries, Emma Woodhouse has captivated readers all over the world - and now she does so onstage. Emma is a timeless tale of love, making mistakes, and holding yourself accountable. A carefree woman, Emma Woodhouse has "the very best blessings of existence" with "very little to vex or distress me."

Emma is also a self-proclaimed matchmaker who thinks too highly of her abilities. When her attempts at matchmaking and romance fail miserably, she has to face herself and the people she has hurt.

In his review for the Los Angeles Times, Daryl H. Miller said: "Unobtrusively flowing in and out of the dialogue, his songs here are sprightly and often comic. The melodies are so simple, though, that they make little more impression than opera recitative — at first. Give them a verse or two, though, and you may be swept along in their surging, cycling emotions."
