It is a truth universally acknowledged that an actor in possession of a woman’s story must be in want of a wife to help him adapt it. Charles Ross, the One Man Star Wars, and visual artist Lisa Hebden tackle the greatest romantic comedy ever, with all the intrigue, dancing, proposals, and lace (did we mention the lace?). A&E’s Pride & Prejudice is being given the one man once over. We hope to leave you rolling in the aisles—but not Jane Austen rolling over in her grave.
“A new star is blazing … This show combines phenomenal skill—seamless transitions and masterful singing of incidental music—with the innocence of an eight-year-old at play. ” —Colin Thomas, Georgia Straight
