Theater In The Now
June 23rd, 2015

"The great trouble with 'Pride and Prejudice' from a production standpoint is it doesn't quite exit the vibe of 'community theater.' Transitions are messy. The scenic elements don't match. The acting is all over the map...This production of 'Pride and Prejudice' needs assistance in the slicing and dicing of fluff material in order to something of note."

"The show is a dud. Awkward pacing, poorly timed light and sound cues and musical interludes, confused-looking choreography, and abruptly ended scenes lend an amateurish quality to the universe created for these professional actors. But with all the effort and energy that have gone into this big, ambitious show, these commendable actors are let down by the material. 'Pride and Prejudice' is still a darn good story, but this musical doesn’t do it very proud."
