A bit lost in translation from the classic novel and an appearance of Larry King in the audience was opening night for Jane Eyre. The sets and costumes were magnificent. The singers were superb and transporting, the emotion is similar to Disney's...continued

RE: Goldstar- I use it for almost all of our entertainment purchases and are pleased with the service. I do wonder why we always wind up in the back rows of whatever section we pay for. Last night we were in N of A-P (front orchestra). Still, we...continued

Difficult to understand the chorus and some of the dialogue due to lack of projection by some of the actors. Leads were very good and the scenery was excellent with the different sets. Quite unique- Music was beautiful and " Jane Eyre" voice...continued

It is helpful to know the story of Jane Eyre to truly immerse oneself in this new work. It is ambitious and still has some "growing to do," but
the principals and supporting cast are well worth the cost of the ticket. It is a vocally rich...continued

I very much enjoyed the actors, singing and music. Very nice writing. I know this a new musical still finding its voice. I have confidence in this fine cast that it will grow into an exceptional musical. Do attend for the experience of seeing a...continued

The acting was superb, as were the costumes & scenery. The music was just OK- we didn't leave there humming any tunes. It appeared as if all the actors were wearing mikes, but the sound was somewhat distorted, and made some dialogue and lyrics...continued

I highly recommend this show. The music is beautiful (if extremely reminscent of Les Miz)and the two leads are excellent. The set is interesting and of course stories don't get much more dramatic than this one. That said, the denument scene and...continued

The female lead was terrific. The music was very very good. A few of the numbers could use a little fixing/tweaking, but it was very nice to see something new. I recently saw a new musical in long beach and that was painful. But this production...continued

I found this musical to be very interesting and boring. Although the main actors have tremendous talent, the storyline and forgettable songs put me into a cycle of continual yawns. Perhaps, it was a "chick-flix" thing. My wife, who loves these...continued

I took my two teen granddaughters...who read the book before the show. They loved it and the drama and the music. They said they'd like to see it again. The principal voices were wonderful...it was a good "old fashioned" kind of musical...with...continued

I must've seen a different musical from what the other reviewers have described. However, I can only review act 1, since we left at intermission (along with several others).

The music was uninspired, sometimes vainly attempting to copy other...continued

The lead singers were very good, the costumes and sets were also quite beautiful. The relationship between the leads, however, needs work, as far as the first act. I did not know what to expect, as Jane is usually portrayed as a humbled,...continued

I am a fan of the story and had seen the musical version of this story that open on Broadway in 2000, which I loved - sweeping music, well acted, right emotional feel, and a great adaptation of the story. Why redo something that was so well done...continued

My wife and I had difficulty in understanding some of the dialogue - especially during the first act. Both leads - Jane and Rochester were clear and distinct however. The songs were forgettable and I can't remember the melody from a single...continued

Truly a delight! I loved the book and the play did not disappoint. The acting and singing were wonderful. Beautiful costumes and many lovely scenery changes added to the production. I have to agree with one of the other ratings that some of the...continued

This rendition of Jan Eyre had a "Beauty and the Beast" feel to it with the music that was added.

We had great seats, and enjoyed the performance very much. I would recommend it, perhaps with the caveat that you would understand it better if you had read the book. We thought the female lead was wonderful and the male lead although a bit more...continued

I was under the misapprehension that this production was the award winning Jane Eyre that premiered on the London stage in 2000. The female lead is excellent,The sets are wonderful and the large cast of happy servants that appear nowhere in the...continued
