Why See Jane Eyre?
Jane Eyre returns
First seen on Broadway in 2000 Charlotte Bronte's most famous heroine, Jane Eyre is returning to the stage in this 2018 revamp! Earning five Tony nominations, including Best Musical, when it first debuted at the turn of the millennium, Charlotte Bronte's famous novel comes to life on stage this fall.
For the past year CMT Artistic Director, Miles J. Sternfeld has been working hard in collaboration with Paul Gordon (Tony-nominated composer and lyricist) and John Caird (Tony-winning book writer) in revising the original musical. This new revised version will see the cast of ten play multiple roles throughout the show, in this more intimate musical.
What is Jane Eyre about?
Orphaned Jane Eyre despises living with her cruel Aunt and cousin, so when the opportunity to attend Lowood School for Girls arises young Jane grabs it with both hands. Shortly after leaving school Jane is hired as a governess at the great Thornfield Hall where she meets the mysterious Mr. Rochester sparking a journey of love and loss where young Jane must face her own sense of morality head on.
