A 1997 recording of Christina Calvit’s stage adaptation of Pride and Prejudice. Jane Austen’s classic romantic comedy is a 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 her arrogant but honorable suitor Mr. Darcy sets the standard for all great couples of stage and screen.
An L.A. Theatre Works full-cast performance featuring Kate Burton, Melanie Dix, Elizabeth Laidlaw, Frances Limoncelli, Miriam Margolyes, Bradley Mott, James Sie, Joao de Sousa, Sandy Snyder, Kevin Theis and Steve Totland.
Directed by Meryl Friedman. Recorded in Chicago in 1997.
DURATION: About a 2 hour performance.
Pride and Prejudice is a novel by Jane Austen, first published in 1813. The story follows the main character Elizabeth Bennet as she deals with issues of manners, upbringing, morality, education and marriage in the society of the landed gentry of early 19th-century England. Elizabeth is the second of five daughters of a country gentleman, living near the fictional town of Meryton in Hertfordshire, near London.
