Reading Time: 7 minutes

“Lights, Camera, Action,” says the director and you know you’re about to witness a phenomenal show. Be it comedy or a serious suspense drama, good stories can transport you into a different world even if it’s for a few hours. If you think Captain America, Twilight actor Robert Pattinson or Emma Stone were born with superpowers in acting, you’re wrong. Their journey began at the theater events making their way up to Hollywood. So, we bring you the greatest of all theater events happening in the United States. You never know, the actor you’re watching live today could be another superhero from Avengers.

Hyde & Seek
One performer. Seven characters. 500+ light and sound cues. No technician. In a long-abandoned theatre, a former stage-doorman, Albert, confesses the untold story of Dr Jekyll… and Mr Hyde. Electromagnets, projection and 18 domestic, colour-changing lightbulbs, all triggered invisibly by one performer employing a system that would make the average Victorian illusionist gawk. Fast-paced, intimate and lavishly visual storytelling: a vaudevillian ghost story expanding on the world of a gothic classic. There will be puppets, there will be songs, there will be technical wizardry and, of course, there will be danger…

Pride and Prejudice is Jane Austen’s classic story involving manners, courtship, and relationships. Finding a husband is hardly Elizabeth Bennet’s most urgent priority. But with sisters, an overzealous match-making mother, and a string of unsuitable suitors, it’s difficult to escape the subject. When the independent-minded Elizabeth meets the handsome but enigmatic Mr. Darcy, all feelings of attraction are muted by his pride and her prejudice. As their worlds keep colliding, their attraction increases. But they first must overcome their own weaknesses and many other obstacles before the most famous courtship in history can begin.
