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

Description

One of the most widely read books in the world is now a musical! The world premiere of Jane Eyre, a musical based on the novel by Charlotte Bronte, opens at Fullerton’s Plummer Auditorium. With  Broadway / national touring stars Melissa Lyons and T. Eric Hart as Jane and Rochester, this new treatment of a classic work  features 16 original songs and a 20-piece, live orchestra. 

Jane grows up as an orphan at Lowood school for girls to become a teacher there, and then leaves to become the governess of  Rochester’s ward at Thornfield Manor, where mystery and intrigue abound. This intense love story of Jane and Rochester is complimented with the humorous antics of Rochester’s household help.

The music is classic in the style of Les Miserables or Jekyll and Hyde, with soaring ballads and large ensemble numbers, including “Maybe Love”, “Common Ground” “Prosperity’s got a Price”, “Two Gentle Eyes”, and “The Moors Will be Calling."  Still  required reading in many schools, this musical dramatization promises to become a popular favorite.  The music is by Jerry Williams, international symphony conductor and Musical Director for Donny and Marie Osmond Productions, with book by Patricia York, adapted for stage by Jan Duncan.
