Quoting Jane Austen

February 12, 2013

Next up on the main stage is Pride And Prejudice, adapted by Christina Calvit from the novel by Jane Austen, and directed for Globe Theatre by Marti Maraden. Yes, I know. The show doesn’t open for several weeks yet. But it’s never too early to set the tone, to create the mood, to whet the appetite by putting you in an Austen frame of mind with the author’s own words, culled from her various works. Quoting Jane begins today and will continue every now and then until the curtain rises.

“There will be little rubs and disappointments everywhere, and we are all apt to expect too much; but then, if one scheme of happiness fails, human nature turns to another; if the first calculation is wrong, we make a second better: we find comfort somewhere.”

Pride and Prejudice runs from March 6 – 24, 2013. Visit the Globe Theatre website for more details, cast information, and to purchase tickets.
