Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen Adapted for the Stage by Christina Calvit

I checked out this two hour audio recording of a stage adaptation of Pride and Prejudice from the library. It is a LA Theatre works audio theatre collection with a full cast production. I love that there were actors for each part of the novel to give a great unique voice to everyone. As with Pride and Prejudice (2005), it did feel like Pride and Prejudice on fast forward. Also a lot of lines were exaggerated to play for laughs, which is understandable as it was a stage production. Overall, it was an enjoyable rendition of Pride and Prejudice; I would love to see a stage production in person!

This is my fourth item for the Pride and Prejudice Bicentenary Challenge.
