February 21, 2013

Christina Calvit, who brought Pride And Prejudice to the stage from the pages of Jane Austen‘s novel, is an ensemble member of Lifeline Theatre in Chicago. She has written more than a dozen theatrical adaptations. Like what, you ask? Well, like Wuthering Heights (Emily Bronte), Jane Eyre (Charlotte Bronte), Far From The Madding Crowd (Thomas Hardy), and A Room With A View (E.M. Forster), to name some of the more familiar works. The others include Angus, Thongs And Full Frontal Snogging (Louise Rennisons) and The Talisman Ring (Georgette Heyer). Calvit has also written a musical adaptation of E.F. Benson‘s Queen Lucia, in collaboration with composer and lyricist George Howe. Her original works include Snowflake Tim’s Big Holiday Adventure, Several Voices From The Cloud, and Purloined Poe.

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