From Charlotte Brontë’s masterpiece, Jane Eyre tells the story of an orphaned girl, brutalized by her aunt and then sent to an orphan school for girls where she suffers more mistreatment. There she meets a young girl who changes her life forever. When Jane later becomes a governess at Thornfield Hall she meets a mysterious man who holds a dark secret. Love, forgiveness and transformation are the themes in this gothic romance for the ages.
Jane Eyre was produced on Broadway in 2000, featuring a book by John Caird and music and lyrics by Paul Gordon. Nominated for five Tony Awards including Best Musical, hear the Tony-nominated score sung for the first time in New York since its premature departure sung by a dazzling cast led by Samantha Massell (Fiddler on the Roof, Rags).
