Most of the votes are for Catherine Morland but I think Tilney's sister deserves a larger share of the vote becuase the virtue of her character been tested and is a deliberate contrast by Austen to Moreland's innocence.

The young are beautiful for their freshness but the wisdom of experience turns one into being metaphoricaly delicious! great mariners are not made on calm seas and that is why it is Ms Tilney for me.

I also voted for Miss Tilney. I can't stand the actress who played Catherine...oh, but the actor who played young Mr. Tilney was very good indeed !

My favorite line in this production is spoken by Mr. A..."shops must be visited and money must be spent..." I love a man who has money and is generous with it !!!

Was this on Sunday the 14th or 21st? I could not find it yesterday, but do not see it on next weeks schedule either. I will be in the Seattle area this week though, so I will check over there.
