L.A. Theatre Works celebrates the 200th Anniversary of Pride and Prejudice with Christina Calvit's acclaimed stage adaptation of Jane Austen
's beloved novel, returning from the first leg of a 25-venue national tour for five performances, Nov. 15-18, at UCLA's James Bridges Theater. There, the production will be recorded in front of a live audience for later broadcast on public radio and SiriusXM Satellite before heading back out on the road. Scroll below for photos of the national touring cast onstage in LA!
L.A. Theatre Works touring productions are a hybrid of the company's usual radio theater format and a more traditional staging. In Pride and Prejudice, the actors perform in front of microphones radio-style, but they are fully costumed and without scripts in hand.
Adapted by Christina Calvit from the novel by Jane Austen, the production is directed by Brian Kite and features Diane Adair, Jane Carr, Chloe Dworkin, Nicholas Hormann, Julia McIlvaine, Cerris Morgan-Moyer, Darren Richardson, Jill Renner and Nick Toren. Pride and Prejudice is produced by Susan A. Loewenberg.
The production will play James Bridges Theater on Thursday, Nov. 15 @ 8 pm, Friday, Nov. 16 @ 8 pm, Saturday, Nov. 17 @ 3 pm & 8 pm and Sunday, Nov. 18 @ 4 pm. James Bridges Theater is located at the UCLA School of Theater, Film and Television, 235 Charles E. Young Drive, Los Angeles, Calif. (enter UCLA from Hilgard just south of Sunset Blvd.; park in Lot 3 on the lower level).
