Critic and Audience Reviews

“Thomas Ouellette’s light-footed, virtuosically coordinated staging flows as smoothly as a ballet and has just the right amount of comic crackle.”

“Heartfelt laughs, engaging characters and Austen’s delightful story that takes more twists and turns than a trip to ‘Peyton Place’.”

“Deliciously fun… beautifully fashioned….canny and quick. You don’t want to miss a word.”

“Orlando Shakes puts on staged performance of wildly popular Jane Austen novel”

“They captured the wittiness of Jane Austen. The dancing was entertaining and helped to illustrate the formality of the social scenes.”

“Excellent show last night! The intensity between Elizabeth and Darcy was electric!”
