Revisit Jane Austen's classic novel Pride and Prejudice with new photos of the musical spin Austen's Pride. The one-night-only concert played Carnegie Hall June 29 with a roster of Broadway alums starring as classic characters—and the author herself.
Mamie Parris led the company as Jane Austen in the new take, which follows the author as she enters her own love story. Through her journey, Jane learns there's more to her own story—and herself. Parris was joined by Olivia Hernandez as Elizabeth Bennet, Andrew Samonsky as Fitzwilliam Darcy, Etai Benson as Charles Bingley, Delphi Borich as Lydia Bennet, Kaitlyn Davidson as Mary Bennet, Katie Dixon as Kitty Bennet/Georgiana Darcy, Carson Elrod as Mr. Collins/Mr. Gardiner, Jason Gotay as George Wickham/Tom Lefroy, Marina Kondo as Caroline Bingley/Mrs. Gardiner, Emilie Kouatchou as Jane Bennet, Cait Martin as Cassandra/Charlotte Lucas, Kevyn Morrow as Mr. Bennet, Michele Ragusa as Mrs. Bennet, and Tony winner Beth Leavel as Lady Catherine de Bourgh.
Rounding out the cast were ensemble members Matt Gibson, Cameron Loyal, Ángel Lozada, and Lucas Thompson. Austen's Pride features a book, music, and lyrics by Lindsay Warren Baker and Amanda Jacobs with orchestrations by the latter.
Reuniting from the work's original production in Seattle in October 2019, Igor Goldin directed the concert with musical direction by Matt Perri and choreography by Lisa Shriver. Perri also served as the evening's conductor of the 24-piece live orchestra with Haley Bennett as music contractor. Tara Rubin Casting/Claire Burke cast the evening.
