Following the runaway success of the 2012-13 Dorothy L. Sayers Series and 2013-14 Georgette Heyer Series, Lifeline continues the tradition with concert readings of three beloved hits from our past: Around the World in 80 Days, adapted by ensemble member John Hildreth (originally produced in 2002, winner of 6 Non-Equity Jeff Awards, including New Adaptation); A Room with a View, adapted by ensemble member Christina Calvit(originally produced in 2006); and Pride and Prejudice, also adapted by Christina Calvit (originally produced in 1986, remounted in 1992 and 2012). All three readings will feature numerous Lifeline ensemble actors and returning original cast members.
