Another Saturday Night in New York is an updated version of Pride and Prejudice with the genders reversed. The musical, according to production notes, follows "Austin Bennett, a greeting card writer who walks in on his girlfriend with another man. He heads back out into the treacherous dating world of New York City with only his brother to guide him. Despite his brother's utter incompetence, Austin meets Marcy, whose spontaneity is matched only by her ability to drive Austin insane."
