Pride and Prejudice (1997 recording)

Pride and Prejudice (1997)

Please note, L.A. Theatre Works has recorded two versions of Pride and Prejudice. This version was recorded in 1997 in Chicago, while we also have a newer version that was recorded in Los Angeles in 2012.

Jane Austen’s 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 her arrogant but honorable suitor Mr. Darcy sets the standard for all great couples of stage and screen. Adapted for the stage by Christina Calvit. A Lifeline Theatre co-production.
