Jane Austen fans in England this month have an opportunity to see an interesting adaptation of Persuasion.
Literary Hub alerted us to the musical version of Austen's 1817 novel, which will run from February 26 to March 19 at Kingston’s Rose Theatre.
Contributing to the soundtrack: musicians Frank Ocean, Dua Lipa, and Cardi B.
Actor Fred Fergus, who plays Captain Wentworth in the play, told What's On Stage that Jeff James, part of the adaptation team, "made a really good point that when he read the book for the first time, a lot of the interpersonal relationships are very much things we see in people today."
You can watch a preview of the musical Persuasion and be the judge yourself.
