Pride and Prejudice

By Jane Austen

Girl meets boy. Girl loathes boy. Girl and boy fall in love. It is a truth universally acknowledged that Jane Austen's most popular novel is also one of the greatest romances of all time. In this lavish, full-scale production, you'll fall in love all over again with the headstrong and independent Elizabeth Bennet, the arrogant but honorable Mr. Darcy and all of Austen's other beloved characters as they navigate the rocky road of manners and matrimony.

"A gloriously radiant production." – Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
