Pride and Prejudice Musical


I just wanted to share with you all that 'Pride and Prejudice the Musical' will be showing at the Athenaeum Theatre in Southport, Chicago, US.


The dates for the performances are February 26th and March 6th and 7th.


The musical was written by Lindsay Warren Baker and Amanda Jacobs and was directed by Steven Daigle.


You can find out more information from http://www.chamberoperachicago.org/


Being in the UK I will not get the chance to be part of this so if any of you do attend any of the performances, please share your reviews on the blog.


I want to acknowledge that I did find this information in the Jan/Feb edition of Jane Austen's Regency World.



(Also would like to mention that Carey Mulligan who plays Kitty in the 2005 Pride and Prejudice has just been nominated for an oscar for her excellent performance in 'An Education'- this is great news for such a talented British actress!)

How I wish I lived closer to Chicago. Perhaps someday it will come to Seattle and I can catch it there.

I was in Chicago 2 months ago visiting my son, but can't go back now, alas! I've informed my niece-in-law, a regular Chicago theater-goer, about the P&P musical, but she is slightly busy with her new-born 2nd child. I think if the musical does well in Chicago, it will be going to New York (maybe Broadway). One can listen to some very fine songs from the musical at this link:

I would so want to live in Chicago right now! But, alas, I'm stuck in Sweden. Nothing like that ever comes to us...

You're most welcome Johanna ^_^

Sit down and enjoy the relaxing ride. Would you like some herbal tea, hot chocolate or cafe late with that?
