KPBS Three-Line Review: "Sense and Sensibility," playing now through Sunday, Aug. 14.

The Globe's musical version of "Sense and Sensibility," which follows the down-on-their-luck Dashwood sisters, is delightful thanks to actors who are equally adept at comedic timing and singing.

Because musicals express more feelings than Austen fans may be accustomed to, the male characters have more depth.

It's a great addition but comes at a price - the show is nearly three hours long.
