Pride and Prejudice (sort of) in Toronto

I really enjoyed the Mirvish production of a humorous retelling of the events that took place in the historical fiction novel Pride and Prejudice by author Jane Austen, updated for this show by Isobel McArthur which is why the play's title includes the (sort of) moniker. 
There are more laughs and singing in Pride and Prejudice (sort of) than the original book, or the numerous remakes made over the years. Keep in mind that Darcy doesn't get wet in this production, but they do question him about it. Ann and I both loved the whole show.

You can't take photos when the actors are on stage so this is the in-between times

From the the show's webpage on the Mirvish webpage, "Direct from its triumph in the West End where it won the Laurence Olivier Award for Best Comedy and the prestigious Evening Standard Theatre Award, Pride and Prejudice* (*sort of) is a unique and audacious retelling of Jane Austen’s most iconic love story. Men, money and microphones will be fought over in this irreverent but affectionate adaptation where the stakes couldn’t be higher when it comes to romance. This “smart, laugh out loud funny” (Daily Telegraph) show features a string of pop classics including Young Hearts Run Free, Will You Love Me Tomorrow and You’re So Vain."

This production is on at the CAA Theatre (651 Yonge Street in Toronto) held over again until January 21, 2024.
