"As Darcy he is a handsome, dashing figure who effectively conveys that prideful and condescending man. But it is the warmth and sweetness that he brings to the role that makes his Darcy so special that we really accept that he is worthy of Elizabeth. It is all the more fun when Patterson dons a pair of glasses and totally shifts into a gangling posture and dorky voice to interpret the tedious and annoying Mr. Collins...Patterson gives us a character so funny and irritating that there is no question why Elizabeth refuses his proposal."

"The two leading characters, Elizabeth and Darcy, are played by terrifically engaging young actors..."

"When the audience is so close, the actors can use their eyes almost as if they're on film or TV, and Brian Patterson, playing Chris, is masterful at this; his eyes speak volumes, not always saying what his mouth does." 

-Steve Barnes Times Union FULL REVIEW

"Patterson even manages to make his rejection of self believable as he curls himself into a failed volleyball on the floor of the stage. His rejection of reality was truly frightening...Both actors face these challenges and emerge winners..."
