The musical stage adaptation of Jane Eyre, which originally debuted on Broadway in 2000, will receive a new developmental reading presented by Cleveland Musical Theatre with an industry presentation on July 19th at Opera America in NYC.
Nominated for five Tony Awards, the musical exploring religion, sexuality and protofeminism, all while enchanting audiences with Charlotte Brontë's timeless love story.
The Michael J. Fox Show's Juliette Goglia stars as Jane with Dr. Zhivago's Tam Mutu as Edward Rochester & Ragtime's Stephanie Umoh as Blanche Ingram.
