An elegant and poised Waggonner was gracious, restrained, and noble in her suffering as Elinor. Milatello gave a glowing performance as Marianne, spontaneous and emotional, flinging herself into everything from reciting Shakespeare to romance.
Noah Bernstein was a charming scoundrel as Marianne's love interest, John Willoughby. Elinor's affections lie with Edward Ferrars (made delightfully awkward byCharlie Pippen), a dear family friend whose choice of a bride lays firmly in the iron fist of his rich, elderly relative. Warren Lester and Tillie McCoskey were over-the-top sensational as Sir John Middleton and Mrs. Jennings.
Macy Ellis, Dylan Welch, Elizabeth Blanchard, Braden Burt, Elizabeth Motes,Thea Gilliland, Alanna Stern, Kira Willis, Justin Reed, Kumail Imam, George Cheng, John Hirata, and Anna Somodevilla rounded out the ensemble.
"Working on this show was a challenge because the subject matter is of very mature nature, but I was impressed with how the actors were able to embody these wonderful characters and really tell the story that Jane Austen gave us," said Guerra.
