Closing Night & Compliments

After Pride & Prejudice closed to a solid run of almost sold out houses, I received the greatest compliment from one of the writers.  She said they loved my interpertation of Anne de Bourgh so much that they were going to incorporate it into future productions.  I was so flattered and humbled that my small character choice could impress someone who had written the scene!  Playing Anne reminded me that it's not about the amount of time you spend on stage, but what you do with it that counts.

Pride & Prejudice's Opening Review

Here's a bit from a lovely review of Pride & Prejudice from Steadstyle Chicago.

"Steven Daigle's energetic production mostly plays the piece for laughs, but there is no lack of drama in the work itself."

"One of the virtues of the show is that this is a real ensemble piece. True, the relationship between Elizabeth and Darcy remains central, but almost every character has a moment or an entire number to shine."

"The first weekend's performances were packed at the Athenaeum Theatre, but tickets are still available for the second weekend. Austen lovers will find this is an exciting opportunity to experience the work anew."
