Jeffrey Borak is The Eagle's theater critic.

This year, the Austen cycle comes full circle. “Miss Bennet …” returns for a series of performances Friday, Dec. 16 evening through Sunday, Dec. 18 in Shakespeare & Company’s Elayne P. Bernstein Theatre.

These performances are dedicated to the late Robert Lohbauer, a veteran Shakespeare & Company actor and armory supervisor, who died in November after a long illness, and his wife, company costume designer, director and shop manager, Govane Lohbauer, who has designed the costumes for all the Austen presentations.

Barrington Stage Company's Artistic Director Alan Paul sees Barrington Stage Company as an incubator for new work, especially musicals (“give quirky young musical writers a chance,” he’s been advised by Broadway composer-lyricist William Finn, who supervises BSC’s Musical Theatre Lab); for revisiting older musicals and making them fresh, in subtle and nuanced ways, for contemporary audiences.
