Pride and Prejudice Musical Reading in New York on November 10


We heard from Lawrence Rush, the author of yet another musical adaptation of Pride and Prejudice (that’s five currently kicking around by our count…guys, she wrote five other books, you know, though Emma is taken as far as we can tell, but we reckon Mansfield Park would make a bitchin’ musical). His musical, which was a finalist for the 2008 Richard Rogers Award, will have an Equity staged reading in New York City on November 10, 2008 at the McGinn/Cazale Theater, 2162 Broadway at W. 76th Street. The reading is open to all but space is limited, so RSVP to prideandprejudicereading AT gmail DOT com. There’s no website that we can tell, but more info below the jump.
