Pride & Prejudice at Performing Arts Center Auditorium at Sacramento City College
When Jane Austen created the aloof, arrogant Mr. Darcy, she could hardly have imagined she was dreaming up one of the most eligible bachelors of the next few centuries. Despite his irritating superiority complex, Fitzwilliam Darcy's ability to listen and change his ways to win over the woman he loves have captured hearts for more than 200 years. It doesn't hurt that his match in Pride and Prejudice is the spirited, clever Elizabeth Bennett. With her intelligence, beauty, loyalty and kindness, she's got it all. Despite all that, her pride could prevent her from finding true love (and financial security) with the countryside's most sought-after single gentleman. City Theatre's delightfully romantic adaptation of one of the great love stories in literature will whisk you away from Sacramento to the English countryside, leaving you starry-eyed and sighing all the way home.
