The cast sang a few numbers in Dress Circle a week or two back which were pleasant enough and I'd love to see it if only I weren't stuck over the wrong side of the country! Let us know what you think re: Austentatious

"Murder is a very British thing, isn't it? I mean, it's almost like a hobby over there."
"Why do you insist you must hear the words? When you know I cannot give you words. Not the ones you need..."

I think it's a brilliant little show. Particularly enjoyable if you know the oeuvre of Austen and/or have ever been involved in a shambolic production...there are a couple of musicals in-jokes in the score too. I recommended it in this week's West End Girl (link below).

Oh I read that earlier today! It was sent to me on the Facebook.

I have heard many great things and can't wait to go now. Should I read Pride and Prejudice this week?

*has never read any Austen*

My friend assures me I will relate to the show, having been involved in am dram!
