Review: 'Pride & Prejudice' musical provides an uneasy blast of modernity

TheatreWorks’ “Pride and Prejudice” musical pays revisionist homage to Jane Austen’s iconic opening lines and glows with an enthusiasm for the witty romance and its characters. Although ably acted and sung, a purist may feel something precious has been lost in the introduction of broad and blithe musical numbers that tell, and tell, and tell what the characters are feeling at the expense of more subtle observations.

The world premiere of Paul Gordon’s musical runs through Jan. 4 at the Lucie Stern Theatre, 1305 Middlefield Road, Palo Alto.

Pear Theatre and the Bootstrap Theater Foundation have joined forces to produce “You/Emma,” set to run through Sunday in Mountain View.

She converses with an imagined “You” – the version of Emma that would exist in today’s more sexually liberated society.
