Entering its last two weeks at the Guthrie Theater Tuesday is “Pride and Prejudice,” which is being performed in celebration of the 200th anniversary of the Jane Austen classic.
The play marks the return to the Guthrie stage Apple Valley native Vincent Kartheiser, of “Mad Men” fame.
Kartheiser stars as Mr. Darcy, while Ashley Rose Montondo — a 2011 graduate of the University of Minnesota/Guthrie Theater Actor Training Program — also stars as Elizabeth Bennet in her debut role on the world stage.
Theater critic Graydon Royce of the Star Tribune praised artistic director Joe Dowling’s production, calling it “briskly paced” and “energetic,” and is mostly convinced by Kartheiser’s performance.
Pioneer Press contributing theater critic Dominic P. Papatola is a bit mixed in his review, calling the production “a lovely-but-shallow staging with no perspective, no stakes and little resonance.”
“Pride and Prejudice” runs through Aug. 31.
