Pride & Prejudice: A Spirited Update on a Classic Romance


  • Syracuse Stage 820 East Genesee Street Syracuse, NY, 13210 United States (map)

In the age of The Crown and Victoria, we go back to the Anglophile source with Kate Hamill’s playful adaptation of Jane Austen’s classic romance, Pride and Prejudice. The outspoken Elizabeth Bennet faces mounting pressure from her status-conscious mother to secure a suitable marriage. But is marriage suitable for a woman of Elizabeth’s intelligence and independence? Especially when the irritating, aloof, self-involved… tall, vaguely handsome, mildly amusing, and impossibly aristocratic Mr. Darcy keeps popping up at every turn? What? Why are you looking at us like that? Literature’s greatest tale of latent love has never felt so theatrical, or so full of life than it does in this effervescent new adaptation. Hey, Jane Austen could show these upstart hipsters a thing or two. Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays: 7:30 pm (Additional performance on 3/27/19 at 2 pm) Fridays: 8 pm Saturdays: 3 pm and 8 pm Sundays: 2 pm (Additional performance on 3/24/19 at 7 pm)
