Adapted from Charlotte Brontë’s masterpiece by John Caird, the classic gothic romance is brought to life with an enchanting score by Paul Gordon. The musical follows the orphaned Jane as she overcomes adversities during her harsh childhood, navigates societal constraints, and ultimately finds herself entangled in a complex and passionate love story with the enigmatic Mr. Rochester while employed as a governess at Thornfield Hall. Though drawn to each other, they are haunted by the ghosts of Rochester’s past, which threaten any possibility of future love or happiness for either. It is not until they discover the power of forgiveness and faith that they are able to escape the web of lies and deceit and ultimately find happiness, in this timeless tale of love, resilience, and self-discovery.
