Luckily, Utah Shakespearean Festival’s new adaptation of Pride and Prejudice had two savvy theater directors — Joe Hanreddy and J. R. Sullivan — for playwrights. The two are experts at propelling words into action. Instead of having the characters tell us their back stories and read letters, we see them acted out in little tableaus that illustrate them. Each scene flows fluidly into the next, triggered by a connecting line and linked by Jaymi Lee Smith’s subtly shifting lighting and Joe Payne’s classical music score.
