December 4, 2019
What Critics are Saying
"It sends off its audience basking in seasonal cheer and believing once again in the promise of soulmates." – The Oregonian
"Lots of romance and lots of laughs, some beautiful staging that's almost like dancing at times, and doses of good old-fashioned screwball comedy ... With fast-paced, smart directing by PCS Artistic Director Marissa Wolf and a beautifully diverse cast, Miss Bennet Christmas at Pemberley is a witty, first-class romp and a great way to celebrate the holiday season." - Ut Omnia Bene
"It’s a frothy, fun romantic comedy played out in gorgeous jewel-colored gowns; it’s a comedy of wit and manners; it’s the story of a woman searching for herself in what is to her an alien world ... relentlessly funny as well as thought-provoking." - Judy Nedry
"It's light and funny, warm-hearted ... this particular production of a fun and frothy play does up-end expectations in just the right ways." - The Portland Observer
"Straight-up funny ... heartwarming ... this play is a holiday treat." - BroadwayWorld
