That themed resort Keri Russell spent her summer at in Austenland is, sadly, fictional, so you’ll have to settle for Lantern Theater Company’s weeklong Jane Austen Festival to celebrate the 200th anniversary of Pride and Prejudice. Those yearning for more sophisticated times can take a lecture on life in the Georgian society or a lesson on English country dancing. Emma will be performed on stage and discussed — book club-style. Finally, author Deborah Yaffe ends the festival talking about her book Among the Janites: A Journey Through the World of Jane Austen Fandom, which explores the enduring legacy of the author and profiles, among others, one devotee with possibly the greatest Roller Derby nickname of all-time: Stone Cold Jane Austen.
Through Oct. 15, $10-$38, Lantern Theater Company at St. Stephen’s Theater, 923 Ludlow St., 215-829-0395, lanterntheater.org.
