Broadway Baby "Hands down the best adaptation of Jane Eyre I have ever seen, in any medium"
Struggling to think, live and love beyond the stifling expectations of duty, class and convention, governess Jane Eyre and Master Edward Rochester take a dark journey towards sensual and intellectual liberation. Told through Jane’s eyes, English literature’s most celebrated autobiographical novel shocked the Victorians, and Charlotte Bronte’s gothic subversion of fairy-tale romance is now distilled for the stage – under its full title – by writer/director Elton Townend Jones. Performer Rebecca Vaughan embodies everywoman Jane – and several other characters – in this intimate study of love’s realities. From the creators of: Austen's Women, I, Elizabeth, The Unremarkable Death of Marilyn Monroe, The Diaries of Adam and Eve, Female Gothic, Christmas Gothic and Dalloway.
