In this imagined sequel to “Pride and Prejudice,” Mary Bennet, single and bookish, seems on her way to becoming a spinster, until she meets the brainy Arthur de Bourgh. A perfect treat for the holidays! “Utterly beguiling [and] delicious.” Chicago Sun-Times

A jazz musical with live on-stage band brings the international jazz and blues artist Alberta Hunter to life. A sensation in the 1920s through the 1950s, she performed on Broadway and in clubs across the US and Europe. After the death of her beloved mother, she gave it all up to become a nurse. Forced to retire at the age of 82, she once again stormed the stage with her unique style and salty repartee. This musical with a heart of gold features the blues hits “Sweet Georgia Brown” and “Darktown Strutters Ball,” amongst many others.
