L.A. Theatre Works, Susan Albert Loewenberg Producing Director, presents Pride and Prejudice By Jane Austen.
Starring TV actress Jane Carr (Two and Half Men, The Closer on TV, Mary Poppins — 3 years on Broadway) and television’s Nicholas Hormann (60 TV appearances including Seinfeld, Parks & Recreation, Desperate Housewives, Bones, Frasier, The West Wing).
It is a truth universally acknowledged that Pride & Prejudice is one of the most beloved stories of all time.
Published in 1813, this season marks the 200th anniversary of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice, one of the most acclaimed and still strikingly modern works of world literature. Austen is famous for her exploration of manners and morals, relationships and disappointments, parents and children.
This classic romantic comedy is the sparkling tale of the Bennets, a family blessed with five daughters and a mother desperate to marry them off. The tempestuous pairing of the witty, independent Elizabeth, and the arrogant but honorable suitor, Mr. Darcy, sets the standard for all great couples of the stage and screen.
Although many have tried, few literary romances have matched the gentle satire of Austen’s Pride and Prejudice. L. A. Theatre Works’ superlative company of actors brings Cristina Calvit’s stunning adaptation to life.
Come see the theater troupe cited by the LA Times for work that is “consistently superb!”
