Wrapping up this week at the Guthrie Theater in Minneapolis is the stage version of the Jane Austen classic “Pride and Prejudice,” which is being performed in celebration of the 200th anniversary of Austen novel.

Guthrie stage Apple Valley native Vincent Kartheiser, of “Mad Men” fame, will be taking his final bow Sunday after nearly two months of performances.

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.”

See "Twin Cities Live's" interview with Kartheiser from last month below.
