New musical Austen's Pride will play a one-night-only concert at Carnegie Hall's Stern Auditorium/Perelman Stage June 29 at 8 PM.
Featuring a book, music, and lyrics by Lindsay Warren Baker and Amanda Jacobs with orchestrations by the latter, Austen's Pride puts a musical spin on the Jane Austen novel Pride and Prejudice. But, there's another twist: Jane Austen enters her own love story, going on a journey that shows her there's more to the story—and herself. Casting will be announced at a later date.
Reuniting from the work's original production in Seattle in October 2019, Igor Goldin will direct the concert with musical direction by Matt Perri and choreography by Lisa Shriver. Perri will also serve as the evening's conductor of the 24-piece live orchestra.
Austen’s Pride was also produced in March 2019 at ACT of Connecticut in Ridgefield, Connecticut.
Austen’s Pride is produced by R. Erin Craig and Fitzwilliam LLC with The Fourth Act LCC, Alana Graber, Joe Grandy, Alex Marrs / Annie Shea, Ryan R. Ratelle, Daniel Wallace, Ltd., and Lindsey and Benjamin Weisman.
