From Broadway

Mrs. Bennett, rural, prosaic and the matriarch of five daughters has her gaze on the social whirl of London while her husband and farm languish. The eldest, headstrong Elizabeth has her own ideas on life and love. With her eyes on the 'prize' and "a house in town", Mrs. Bennett sets about bringing stubborn Elizabeth into the social orbit of upscale snob William D'arcy, with classic, hilarious results. The original cast on Broadway included Polly Bergen, Hermione Gingold and Farley Granger as D'arcy.


First Impressions premiered on Broadway at the Alvin Theatre in March 1959 under the direction of Abe Burrows.
