IN EMILY'S WORDS is a musical that follows the journey of English novelist Emily Brontë as she is writing her magnum opus: Wuthering Heights. The story of Cathy and Heathcliff comes to life in Emily's eyes, the characters jumping off the page as she is writing them, and Emily herself becoming more immersed in her tale as the musical progresses. It utilizes a show within a show construct, with equal care given both to Emily Brontë's journey as a female writer in the 1840s (publishing under a masculine pseudonym), as well as the journey of her characters. In a word, this musical is about imagination. Emily's imagination knew no bounds, and in spite of being a recluse and having seen very little of the world, she was able to craft a tragic, sweeping melodrama that has left a legacy nearly 200 years after her death. In the end, Emily Brontë pushes through her own personal battles, paving the way for generations of future female writers, as well as characters who are people of color who find agency and power through adversity.

The Emerging Artists Theatre New Work Series  
Fall 2021

October 4 - October 24, 2021

All performances at:
TADA! Theater
15 West 28th St, 2nd floor
Between Broadway and 5th Avenue

Curators: Paul Adams, Andrea Alton, Vanessa Shealy

Emerging Artists returns with their one-of-a-kind festival. Visit the theater any evening during this three-week event, and you'll find yourself transported in a number of surprising ways: by a single performer embodying a whole host of characters; by a more experimental theater piece "done differently" that challenges and delights; by a cozy two-person show exploring relationships; or perhaps by a bouncy new musical that will have you humming. Emerging Artists has always been about new works, new talents, new voices. That's never been more evident than now.

NO REFUNDS will be granted.
