Congratulations. You survived all of the back-to-school shopping and the tears and jeers from the first month of school. Now it’s time for a date night, and what better way to reconnect with society and your loved one than at the theatre. A night at the theatre will provide all of the drama you’ll find at home, minus the guilt. So dial up the sitter and click through the gallery to see what’s playing on a stage near you this fall.

Pride and Prejudice

It is a truth universally acknowledged that Pride and Prejudice ranks among author Jane Austen’s works as one of her best. Playwright Kate Hamill imbues new life to this classic love story with a decidedly progressive take on the trials and travails of Elizabeth Bennet, Mr. Darcy, and, of course, the delightful Bennet clan. But not to worry, empire waists and lavish Regency-era attire still abound in this familiar yet surprisingly modern premiere adaptation.

Dates: Sept. 29–Oct. 29, 2017. Select Sat., Sun. and Wed. matinees at 2 p.m. and evening performances at 7:30 p.m.
Tickets: $30-$80
