One Man Pride And Prejudice

 

Review


It’s hard work to boil down a five-and-a-half-hour mini series into an hour-long, one-man stage play, but Charles Ross gave it his best shot. The problem is that Ross moves through the plot at such a frenetic pace that its hard to catch everything he’s saying. Some of the characters also got a little blurred at the beginning, though it got easier to follow as things progressed. Ross delivered his best jokes when he slowed down, and when he engaged directly with the audience. I definitely can’t imagine anyone unfamiliar with the source material (at the very least the mini series starring Colin Firth, but also the novel) keeping track of what’s happening. But if you’re a big enough Jane Austin fan, you’ll enjoy Ross’ portrayal of Darcy, Mr. Collins, and some of Pride and Prejudice’s more over the top characters. -Chelsea Novak

    I’ve never seen the show or movie. And never read the book. And I could follow it.
    And am not shy in saying that as a straight a male, I loved it.
    Not just for “old ladies”.
    In fact I can hands down tell you this is my favourite of all his shows ( that includes one Man Star Wars. )
    I mean you can take the word of the reviewer. … you could also take the word of the review at the Edinburgh Fringe from last week that gave this same show 5 stars … I guess that’s up to you.
